Here is a love letter from Edgar Allan Poe to his beloved wife:

爱伦坡

My dear Heart—My Dear Virginia—Our mother will explain to you why I stay away from you this night. I trust the interview I am promised will result in some substantial good for me—for your dear sake and hers—keep up your heart in all hopefulness, and trust yet a little longer. On my last great disappointment I should have lost my courage but for you—my little darling wife. You are my greatest and only stimulus now, to battle with this uncongenial, unsatisfactory, and ungrateful life.
I shall be with you tomorrow, and be assured until I see you that I will keep in loving remembrance your last words, and your fervent prayer!
Sleep well, and may God grant you a peaceful summer with your devoted.
(Edgar Allan Poe was an American writer, editor, and literacy critic. Poe is best known for his poetry and short stories, particularly his tales of mystery and the macabre. He is widely regarded as a central figure of Romanticism in the United States and American literature as a whole, and he was one of the country’s earliest practitioners of the short story. Poe is generally considered the inventor of the detective fiction genre and is further credited with contributing to the emerging genre of science fiction.-From Wikipedia)
