Another postcard based on a photo by De Witt C. Wheeler. This time, though, I think he messed up a bit. This woman doesn't look at all dreamy and romantic. She looks possessed.
Anyway, it wasn't mailed, but there is a long message scrawled across the back of the card, "Dear Friend Maude, I hope you will like this it is an illustrated song. It is hard to realize that the holidays are so near it is real warm here yet but I suppose it is cold enough up where you live. I want you to tell me what the nearest large city is to where you live and Maude could you not send me one of your photos you told me a long time ago you had some taken if you would you would please your dear friend."
I'm thinking Quaker courtship. There's a lot of friend this and friend that. I hope that Maude's dear friend got his message across. I hate to think he went to all the effort to find the card, ask for a photo, and then didn't have the nerve to follow through.
