At project Henrik Ibsen's Writings we have created a new element called
<letterinfo> into which we put information about sender, recipient, place
<origDate value="1866-04-25">25. april 1866</origDate>

Henrik Ibsen's Writings
> I was wondering if and how anyone working on a collection of letters has
captured information in the header about where the letter was sent?
> In the collection of correspondence that I am working on the two
correspondents moved several times and significant events are tied to
their residence in these different areas. We would like to find a way to
capture this in the header so that users may search on where the letter
was sent, but are unsure of how to do so. We've looked at the new
manuscript chapter of P5 and will probably use the <origPlace> in the
<history> set to capture where the letter was written, but don't seem to
see a way to incorporate where it was sent.
> Any thoughts, ideas, or examples would be most appreciated.
