The addressee, Charlotte R. Mount, was found on the 1910 Federal Census for Southampton, Long Island, New York. Bridgehampton is located in the town of Southampton. (Ahhh, The Hamptons – never got that till just now, duhh!) But, this is a cute card with nice colors and gold-tone highlighting, showing a gentleman trying to persuade a lady to come along with him. She’s smiling back at him while a pleased cupid looks on from the background. The sender wrote an appropriate and funny caption,  “how about this one”  and signed their initials,  “L.W.S.”

The 1910 census shows:  Theodore H. Mount, born about 1838 in South Carolina, working as a farmer; his wife Catherine L., born about 1845 in New York, working from home as a laundress; and their grown children T. Herbert Mount, born about 1866 in New York, doing day labor; and Charlotte R. Mount, born about 1887 in New York, no occupation listed.
