Letter arrives after 56 years

LONDON, May 15 (UPI) -- A letter mailed 56 years ago has finally been delivered to Cambridge University in England.

The BBC said the handwritten letter, mailed March 3, 1950, was addressed to George Green at the university's Trinity College.

It reads: "George, will meet at Monty's next weekend. Is 2 p.m. acceptable? Love Gwen."

The college is checking its records to see if Green was a student.

A Royal Mail spokesman said the fact that the letter has a postmark makes is highly unlikely that it has been in their system for more than 50 years.

"It is possible that it may have got caught up in a large envelope and sent to a wrong address," spokesman James Taylor told the BBC. "It is certainly a strange one."
