  • Use Of "Sor"

    Once believed ( maybe it still is ) in the salutation of the Lusk Letter...the title, "Sor"

    Hi Howard

    I have always thought of the "Dear Sor" in the Lusk (From Hell) letter as being an Irishism, although I also think there is room to think that with the writing being so bad it might have been just a badly formed "Dear Sir." Good find, Howard, nonetheless. Thanks, mate.

    Cheers
