I had to dig into the vintage dictionary collection to find a definition for asthore. (N) Irish, my treasure: a term of endearment. For the record, spell check doesn't recognize asthore. How disappointing.
Written on an undivided back, "Mrs Jos. H. Stock, Hillsboro Lower Village, N.H. c/o J W Jackman" Also, two postmarks, "WHITERIVER JUNCTION, 2:30 pm, APR 30, 1907" and "HILLSBORO BRIDGE, N.H. MAY 1, 4 PM, 1907 REC'D." Published by Bamforth & Co., Holmforth England, and New York City. They were in business from 1870 through 1990. They opened their New York Office in 1906.
