The Correct Thing
The correct thing now is to seal one’s letters with red sealing wax if you will, but preferably blue, green or cinnamon colored, and seal with your crest or coat of arms if you choose.
But more correctly, still with emblems, such as the good old sentimental ones our grandmothers loved: “Forget Me Not,” “True Friendship,” “With My Hand and Sele.”—Chicago Herald, 1893
