This contribution focuses on letters written by private soldiers from Denmark around the middle of the 19th century. It investigates whether there were statistically significant differences in the orthographic skills between the social groups into which the rural male population could be classified at that time. Apart from the writers' social rank, I look at the correlation between the percentage of norm divergence and the correspondents' place and time of birth, as well as the length of the letter and the repeated use of specific types of divergences by the correspondents.
