Tim’s 19th Century E-Mail Challenge

 Tim’s 19th Century E-Mail Challenge


My friend Tim (whose pen name here is SAREJESS) 
recently issued what he called a 19th Century E-mail
Challenge in his Blog.

The challenge was to imagine e-mails existed 
in the 19th Century and to write an e-mail about
some 19th century happening.

One could write either as a real historical personage
or a literary character of the 19th century.

So here’s my 19th Century e-mails:

From: Oscar Wilde owilde@oldbailey.co.uk

To: Queen Victoria victoriaR@buckinghampalace.co.uk

Sent: May 25th, 1895 at 2:05 PM

Subject: The Stupidity of the British Jury 

Your Majesty:

I’ve just been convicted of sodomy!

What a bummer! 😉

Your not so gay at the moment
obedient servant,

~Oscar Wilde.

From: Queen Victoria <victoriaR@buckinghampalace.co.uk>

To: Oscar Wilde <owilde@oldbailey.co.uk>

Sent: May 25th, 1895 at 2:35 PM

Re: The Stupidity of the British Jury

My dear and most wayward subject Oscar:

We are not amused! 😦

Your Sovereign and Queen
and England’s ONLY Queen (do bear that in mind, Mr. Wilde!),

~Victoria R.
