Letters from 1919

I have embarked on a bit of a journey via a translation job. This is going to be very interesting. The letters were written ninety years ago by a young woman in Denmark. She is just about to get married and the letters will take me on the journey from Denmark to Canada. It will be a story much like my own I think except this woman immigrated to Canada exactly 74 years before I did. There are at least fifty letters so this will be quite a project. Some of the letters are more than 10 pages long and bares little resemblance to todays short emails or text messages.
