Holland Girl ISO American Boy

1959: A Holland girl sent a letter to North Dakota addressed "To a Nice Boy" seeking someone with whom she could correspond.

You can sense in her letter the kind of suspicions about identity that have become so familiar in the Internet age — that you often don't know people's true identity online. You just know who they're claiming to be. But of course, how do we know that "Holland girl" was really a girl?
