What Was the Longest Letter Ever Written?

The record for the longest letter was established in 1952, during the Korean War.

A lady in Brooklyn, New York, wrote to her boyfriend, a private in the U.S. Army, serving in Korea.

Instead of using regular writing paper, this ingenious lady used the narrow tape that is found on adding machines, 3,200 feet of it! The letter took her one month to write.
