Special Feature:

Charles Blacksworth's lost letters have been found beneath a mattress, five years after his death.

But Charles also made audio recordings, just in case the letters were lost.

Both items have been found, and now the letters to Gloria, Christine, Lily, Harry, and Miriam can be read and heard, for the first time.

Today's letter is addressed to Miriam, the final letter of five.
