“Ring out the old
Ring in the new,
With greetings gay and wishes true!
Once more the joyous season is here
To wish you a prosperous,
Happy New Year.”
Here’s a lovely card in the Lena Davis Collection, showing the above wish, and a cozy home in winter scene, flocked by three and four-leaf clovers. (A touch of realism there, since four-leaf clovers are harder to find.)
The card is addressed to: “Miss Lena Davis. Calvert, Kans.” and the sender wrote,
“Toledo, Ia. Dec. 29, 1914. Dear cousin Lena. Am sorry to hear that you got her.[hurt] Hope you are allright now. We are all well as usal. Will send you a card now and letter later. Wishing you a very Happy New Year. Your sincere cousin. Beulah Davis.”
Divided back, embossed, unused postcard with writing. Dated by the sender December 29, 1914. Publisher unknown. Series 346A.
