It always surprises me how much one person can say with only a few words, and how little another can say with volumes.
It was early August, 1938. America was deep in the Great Depression. A woman named Helen sent a postcard from downeast Maine to a relative near Boston.
The card was postmarked in New Harbor and addressed to Mrs. Roger W. Weeks, Willowbred (sp?) Farm, Marion, Massachusetts.
It is now for sale on eBay.
I didn’t hasten to answer your card as I knew that Pa had written to you, and that you would know that he was all right.
He’s pretty worried about you with no water + lights.
We’re delighted with this fine weather down here + glad to be missing it in Boston. Pa is fine.
Helen + all of us.
