The message on this postcard of the Rustic Bridge and Pavilion in Lester Park is dated Jan. 21, 1910, and postmarked Jan. 22. The sender’s name isn’t easy to read, but the recipient is Henry Seeam of Rice Lake, Wis.
Best attempt at deciphering the handwriting:
1-21-1910. Dear Hank: We are here and like all fine. When does [?] work? Or who else? There’s a nice place to work in so you can come and see. Our baby is sick. Where did Rubyor or what his name is work up here? Write me a Soo Line letter so I won’t get homesick. We live next door to M.C. Church so you had better call soon. #312 W. 3rd St.
The signoff name looks something like S.R. Sather.
