Ghost Letters

I've heard about an idea in correspondence called "ghost" letters. Correspondents write as a historical character and write about actual events that occurred in history. Imagine correspondence between FDR and Winston Churchill.

What might they have said? How would they express what they feel? What might their penmanship look like?

Anyone want to play?

I can envision this being not only fun, but educational. Imagine the research possibilities! Imagine the reading needed.

I hope someone takes me up on this idea.
