Divided Back, embossed postcard. Unused with writing. Publisher unknown. Circa 1907 – 1909.
Obviously, this one’s a little beat up, but I think I have other cards for Mattie, so I want to make sure they all get included.
The sender wrote: “Dear Mattie: – I rec’d your Christmas remembrance which I was very glad to get. I hope you have had a Merry Christmas and I wish you a happy and prosperous New Year. Nellie K.”
Addressed to: “Miss Mattie Smith, Norton, Kansas.”
This might be the Mattie Ristora Smith that had married Theodore Denney Romans in 1910. And, the sender possibility is Nellie King. They were both in Norton, Kansas in that time-period. We’ll have to look up the other possible cards we have for Mattie, and do some more research.
