A diary is a record of entities usually arranged by date which focus on events that have happened during a precise period of time. A personal diary may contain personal experiences, feelings, and thoughts. Individuals who keep and write diaries are known as diarists. In addition to personal purposes, diaries can be taken for institutional achievements; therefore, they include government records, business ledgers and military records.
Today the term diary is normally related to personal diaries which intend to be private or to have limited circulation among friends or relatives. Therefore, although diaries may contain data related to memoir, autobiography or biography, they are not written with the intention of being published.
Letters consist of written messages that a person write for other people to transmit information.

During the 16th and 18th century, letters were adopted to self-educate as they were a good way to practice critical reading and improve personal writing skills.
Currently, letters is a good way to communicate without the use of the Internet and despite the development of emails, they are still popular, above all in a business context.
