Absolutely. I would even have gone so far as to put a stamp on it if it didn't have one already.

Yes, I would have mailed the letter. I think any survivor would. It was a good deed in the finder's mind.

Yes I would have. It was sealed and addressed, so why wouldn't I think it should be mailed.

Yes, I would have. Makes you think though of the consequences now.

Maybe, but I'd have read it first, to see if perhaps it shouldn't be mailed.

I would have absolutely mailed it. I don't think it would be my place to decide whether to mail it or even read it. Somebody else made the decision to mail it years ago and that decision should be respected.

I would definitely mail a sealed envelope that I found that was addressed...wouldn't have considered the contents really.

Yes, I would have mailed it. I agree with mariannes..."Someone else made the decision to mail it years ago and that decision should be respected."

I'm sorry to admit that I probably would steam it open and read it first and then decide whether to mail it (based on not enough information!). Can't resist a mystery!

I also would have mailed it- thinking too that I was doing a good deed. Not sure if I would have opened it or not- maybe!

This letter wasn't sealed, though - the photo of Vivien and Jimmy fell out of the envelope, remember.

In the chaos of the bombings when lives were lost a letter was very important. Yes I too would have sent it.

If there was any possibility that the owner of the residence was alive, I would collect any items and give them to the owner, but If I had found the letter and not known whom it might belong to, I would have mailed it. I would have thought it was be a good deed to mail it.
