TITLE: “Letter II”
ARTIST: Hua Chen
WHY WE CHOSE IT: On this day in 1775, the U.S. postal system was established by the Second Continental Congress. Benjamin Franklin (January 17, 1706 – April 17, 1790) was its first postmaster general.
There’s still something special about receiving a handwritten letter in the mail, don’t you agree?
