Back of postcard reads: Sunday eve. Dear Minnie: We took a drive up through Mo. Park this P.M. drove about 10 mi. saw lots of country, good homes & orchids, lots of all kinds…(illegible)…the wind blew too much to be pleasant. We hope you are feeling well. Sorry you could not get back here this spring. We are well pleased with this place so far. The alfalfa is coming on fine. Will work on ditch tomorrow, and will go to town, Eleanor to school. Love to all, E.G.

Back of postcard reads: Hello dear: Meet me tomorrow night – (20th!) I have decided not to go to the dance by myself. Would rather go on home. If you don’t get this card I don’t know what I’ll do. I’m on my way to the show with Mrs. Clayborn & Martha. Bye Bye with love. Evelyn T.
