Nice article, but would I can't see how they washed up? Surely they are from somewhere near by. Wouldn't the sea have destroyed them over those years?!

Yeah, it's not clear who had the letters before the storm, but another article I saw said that they believe they floated down a nearby river and into the bay where they were found. So I guess someone must have had them in thier home or something. Would be interesting for the family I bet, to find out a bit more about that.
