While I don't write letters like you talked about, each of my nieces or nephews that gets married gets a book of family history from me. It is about their grandparents and has a section in the back of stories written by my husband and his brothers and sisters from when they were growing up. The first couple of ones to get thems I know thought-where's the corningware!? But now it is a much looked forward to and cherished tradition in the family to get this and share it with the new spouse!

Mr. Wright, I hope it will interest you to know that there are still schools that insist on students learning to write using pencils and pens, using cursive writing (carefully cultivated). One of those schools also has a focus on grammar and writing skills. I used to teach there and loved the "old school" and patriotism (to mention another virtue) emphasized at Carden Memorial School. You are right, Wright, letters are small flat treasures to be kept and reread.
