This postcard was mailed Sept. 18, 1911 — 110 years ago today. For some reason it took more than a month to reach it’s destination. It bears a second postmark of Oct. 26; indicating it took 38 days to travel about 250 miles from Duluth to Miss Martha Moe in Wood Lake.
The sender of the card, whose name appears to be “Clara L.J.” of 122 E. Third St., wrote:
How is my big sister getting along? Don’t let her get home sick, will you? I heard she was. Say is Johannha married? I like it quite well but am so terrible busy. I’d rather do housework. Ha! Ha! Write me a letter Martha and I’ll surely answer it.
