Let me hear from thee by letters.

The letter is too long by half a mile.

         (Maria at V, ii)

O sweet Portia,
  Here are a few of the unpleasant'st words
    That ever blotted paper!

Tell him there's a post come from my master, with his horn full of good news.

What, have I 'scaped love letters in the holiday time of my beauty, and am I now a subject for them?
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Merry Wives of Windsor
         (Mistress Page at II, i)

I have a letter from her
  Of such contents as you will wonder at,
    The mirth whereof so larded with my matter
      That neither singly can be manifested
        Without the show of both, wherein fat Falstaff
          Hath a great scene.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Merry Wives of Windsor
         (Fenton at IV, vi)

To Milan let me hear from thee by letters
  Of thy success in love, and what news else
    Betideth here in absence of thy friend,
      And I likewise will visit thee with mine.

Jove and my stars be praised. Here is yet a postscript.

If this letter move him not, his legs cannot. I'll give't him.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Toby at III, iv)

A woman seldom writes her Mind, but in her Postscript.
      - Sir Richard Steele, Spectator (no. 79)

Thou bringest the sailor to his wife,
  And travell'd men from foreign lands,
    And letters unto trembling hands;
      And, thy dark freight, a vanish'd life.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, In Memoriam (pt. X)

I read
  Of that glad year that once had bee,
    In those fall'n leaves which kept their green,
      The noble letters of the dead:
        And strangely on the silence broke
          The silent-speaking words.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, In Memoriam
         (pt. XCV)

Go, little letter, apace, apace,
  Fly;
    Fly to the light in the valley below--
      Tell my wish to her dewy blue eye.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, The Letter (st. 2)
