MONTREAL (AFP) - A 45-year-old letter mysteriously arrived in the mailbox of a Canadian woman, who received the ancient correspondence from her younger sister decades after it was sent, Canadian media reported on Tuesday.

The missive, mailed by her then nine-year-old sibling, was sent in 1969 with a six-cent stamp, Anne Tingle told public radio CBC.

It arrived wrapped in plastic with a note from Canada Post apologising for the envelope's state, but not the delay.

"Dear customer, we sincerely regret that your mail item is damaged. It was found in this condition in the mail stream" the note read.
