Ok. Shall I take that as a confirmation that the mailbox idea is our preferred one? I am happy to run to the mailbox if everyone is happy with that, it maybe take me a little while to set it up though.

I wonder though, we all live in different countries - how could Adrienne afford forwarding letters overseas and vice versa?

Fleur I earn some revenue from the site through advertising and book and picture sales, provided I am not forwarding many letters every week I believe it will be manageable. If I find it is not I may put a donation request on this thread and that way those who are able can make small contributions to the cost of postage.

I'm on for that and you can write to me in French, English or German. However I think that the subject matter should turn around MA, Versailles, 18th century, books we read or recommend etc. As we don't know each other I can't see much point writing to each other about what we do every day..

Yes, I also think that's a sensible starting point. If then one wants to write something else it will come natural. Personally, I could write in Italian, English or German (I'm trying t improve my German, so it would help).

Post Re: Letter Exchange
This subject gave me an idea.
I went to the Paris last year and I had visited the Versailles. Unfortunately, I had spent a lot of money in Vienna and in other places of Paris so I had money only to buy few souvenirs at the Versailles. I had bought few postcards, only one with Marie Antoinette image and one small notebook also with her image. Since I got more interested in her life, I very regret that I have only two souvenirs. Notebook I don’t even use but keep it like some treasure. However I remember that in the Versailles you could buy many beautiful souvenirs with her image.
So I was wondering is there anyone –from moderators of this site- who lives in Paris and visit Versailles from time to time. I would collect some amount of money (maybe 30 or 40 euros) and have enough trust to send it to one of the moderators so he/she could buy me some souvenirs and then send them to me. I don’t know if this is a possible solution, I hope so, since I can’t order souvenirs from the internet, even if I could find them, I don’t have a credit card and, even if I had it, I would have waited much longer.
Please inform me. I’ll be able to collect money by the end of the May since I doubt that my parents would like to cooperate (I am already addicted to shopping :roll: ).
Waiting for answer…

Post Addresses
Ok, so we can start to get our letter writing arrangements underway, if you would be interested in receiving letters I will need to have your address so that I can forward the mail as it arrives. Please leave me either a private message or send me an email (editor@marie-antoinette.org) with the postal address you would like to have your mail sent to. Do not post it here, if you do I will edit the post and remove it. If you are emailing me please be sure to give me your forum name so I know who the address is coming from. You should also include the name you would like the mail addressed (this is just for the envelope, your name will not be revealed here to letter writers unless you choose).

I will allow a week for this to happen from today, once I have a list of addresses I will post the names of those participating in this forum and you may pick one, two or many people to write to. At that time i will also post the mailbox address (this may be a post office box or my own address, I have yet to decide which is the better way to go.)
