SKOWHEGAN, ME (WVII/CBS) - A letter from a woman to her mother is bringing new meaning to the phrase "snail mail."

The letter marked with a two-cent stamp didn't arrived to Skowhegan until now - 83 years after it was mailed.

It was intended for Ann MacMichael's grandmother back in 1931 - nine pages detailing the life of a 23-year-old in northern Maine with dreams of Boston.

The writer, MacMichael's aunt, was a piano player for the silent movies. She wrote about her time at a music festival with a particular professor.

Someone found the letter at the Pittsfield, ME, post office. It will now be sent to the son of MacMichael's aunt.

She just hopes it arrives in the mail sooner rather than later.
