Writing is a habit that we need to cultivate in our children, and one of the best ways to encourage writing is if they could be encouraged to exchange letters among their peers.
A great time to suggest writing letters is on vacations from schools where children do not have face to face contact with each other for extended periods of time. Keeping in touch by writing letters to each other is a progressive habit that also improves on language and communication skills.
Picking up a phone and communicating is a universally practiced endeavor but letter writing is something which adds some spice to communication. Writing brings out stronger feelings within and is a far more personalized form of communication that a txt or email.

History Of The Stamp In Colorado:
The Post system that we think of today began with the British colonizing North America. The British Parliamentary Post was under the control of the British Crown and it was the English who brought their postage system and know how across the Atlantic to the United States.
Sending letters by post was an expensive affair and many could not afford it but resorted to other means of sending letters which was generally limited to being taken across by friends, relatives or acquaintances from town to town.
The advent of the postage stamp and the streamlining of services changed the way letters were sent across the country. The lowering costs brought the postage system within reach of the everyday worker.
The first postage stamps were issued in the denominations of five and ten cents, on July 1st 1847 with the former depicting the profile of Benjamin Franklin the first Post Master General and the latter of President George Washington, the first President of the United States of America respectively.
The issuance of postage stamps revolutionized the writing of letters and also the delivery of them across the United States. It opened up means of communication throughout the country and even beyond with letters able to make it across the mighty Pacific and the Atlantic if you could afford to send them.
