“Holbrook Aug 4, 1912. Dear cousen. I ame all right and hope you are felling better then you was or at least not so tired. well I have had some bad luck since I come home friday I lost that horse we was talk about. I docter her all day then next day after I got home she died about ten oclock at night. the little colt is just seven weeks old she was the best one I had. from your cousen J. W. Carter”
Another in the J. W. Carter series, and a terribly sad one. We send all kind thoughts and ((hugs)) to J. W. and the colt. The horseshoe on the front of the card is appropriate, isn’t it?
On the bright side, this is a lovely, understated card of a gold-tone horseshoe with a small bunch of four-leaf clover that is caught up in a red ribbon. Below these good luck symbols is a city skyline scene, which appears way off in the distance. A white border of scroll work and clover complete the card.
Divided back, embossed postcard, unused with writing. Circa 1912. Publisher: KLC or KL Company. Series 109.
