letters and pens

My sister and i had some trouble figuring out what to do with our father's letters to us. It was fairly obvious his work, including letters, should be preserved. The national museum of literature had expressed interest, but we both had difficulty in donating our personal things. In the end, i made copies of the letters he wrote me and gave away those. They are really good, displaying not only what a great writer he was, but also how loving a father. The originals i kept and read regularly. I also kept his pens. They've run dry.
