Tallahassee FL-When you were little you probably tried to put a message in a bottle and send it off to sea. well one local lady may have found your letter.
A woman from Alligator Point says she's found a letter which says it's from 1969.
Alligator Point Resident and Bottle Finder Georgia Bradley, "Well I walked down to the beach and I found a bottle, and this is what was in it."
This crinkled up piece of paper, is a note signed by Kent Headlee and Robert Saleski- dated 1969. Found by Georgia Bradley, the Alligator point resident who initially thought the piece of paper was just a piece of garbage. "At first I thought it was a joke...It's just this dumb poem," Bradley told us.
Her daughter Sharon Fitzgerald thinks it's far from a joke "They wrote a little poem and it says: Woe is the world of this nuclear age christened with sex violence and rage. We of this time wish so to see what like the future days will be."
Determined to find out if this bottle and letter are real, she brought it to the Wakulla County Historical Society, and although they couldn't say right now that it was from 1969. The director Calvin Jamison told us it seems real.
Either way Bradley says it was just the most exciting find, "Lord.. You just read about stuff like this you don't actually find it."
The Bradley family is hoping someone knows the message writers.
If you have any information, contact the Wakulla County Historical Society.
