What is the function of the "と" particle in this sentence?

沢山手紙を書くからね, と.

  • Would you give us some context? The person doesn't happen to be writing down these words as they utter them to themselves, do they? – goldbrick Mar 30 '18 at 16:53

沢山手紙{たくさんてがみ}を書{か}くからね,

『沢山手紙を書くからね。』

『沢山手紙を書くからね。』言{い}った/思{おも}った/書{か}いた, etc.。

This is the quotative 「と」.

Someone said/thought to himself/wrote, etc. "I will write you many letters!"

What the actual action is and who that someone is, only the context will tell.
