Stella Stewart Center
“A good letter-writer possesses the temperament that makes and holds friends. He is usually an impressionable, lively, sensitive individual with humane impulses and sympathetic thoughts. He is able to describe the commonplace details of the routine of life in such a way as to strike a responsive chord in the reader. Is he not like that rare individual who is more interesting after a two-mile jaunt than other people after a tour around the world? The best letter-writers make the reader feel an increasing tenderness for them.”
Stella Stewart Center, U.S. writer, educator, editor
(1878 - 1969)
