Letter delivered 67 years late

A letter addressed to Miss R.T. Fletcher at the American Red Cross Hospital at Camp Roberts in California arrived a little late. Sixty-seven years late. The letter was postmarked at 6:30 p.m. on Aug. 9, 1944, at Montgomery, Alabama. The hospital it was addressed to has since been torn down. Why the letter sat undelivered for all those years and suddenly appeared in the mail is a mystery. The intended recipient, Fletcher, now 90, lives on the east coast. Her brother, who had sent the letter, has since passed away. The letter is now on its way to Fletcher.
