If you’re still out there, Jenny Brown, someone beachcombing at the tip of Cape Cod has found the message that you placed in a bottle more than 36 years ago.
Joshua Mendes was beachcombing in Provincetown, Massachusetts, two days before Thanksgiving this year when he came upon a Coke bottle mostly buried in sand about a mile from Race Point Ranger Station in the Cape Cod National Seashore, a national park.
“I think it’s been buried in the cliffs there, all those years,” said Mendes, a 42-year-old Provincetown resident.
In the bottle was a message dated May 14, 1983, from Jenny Brown, which identifies her as an 11-year-old, Mendes said.
It gives the address of a Jonesport post office box, and has a simple note: “Please write me.”
