“Hello old boy: How does this look to you in this kind of weather? 104° yesterday & 90° to-day, no trouble to keep warm I assure you. Have any fire crackers on the 4th ha ha. I amused my self with a toy pistol and some match heads. Yours, Scotty.”
Addressed to: “Mr. E. C. Bowman, 33 Kingwood St., Morgantown, W. Va.”
The recipient of this card was likely Eugene C. Bowman, found on the 1910 Federal Census for Morgantown, with wife Madge (Smith). Both are W. Virginia natives: Eugene is about age twenty-seven on this census, and an engineer at a power plant.
