Christian Askeland, over at ETC, drew my attention to this classic post-card (from A.G. Grenfell to his brother, B.P. Grenfell who was leaving to collect papyri at Oxyrhynchus [image from the Oxy web site]):

It is a good example of a letter where we have to reconstruct preceding conversation and decode the style of communication.
