Mystery letter is delivered at last

A mystery letter that arrived 89 years after it was posted has been delivered to the daughter of its owner. (see previous blog entry Mystery letter turns up after 89 years )

Stella Pontin, 85, said she was delighted to receive the letter, which is addressed to her father Percival Bateman and dated November 29, 1919.
