    Interesting that it is a New Year’s card, with the Christmas motif, and that the reverse side seems to be embossed with the bell image from the front.

    What is the source for the census sheet? Is that a photocopy in your possession?

    You might be able to obtain a range of dates for when the card was sent if you compare it to greetings cards of the era in which Ina and Frances lived.
