Address: Mrs. J.W. Hackleman, R.R. No. 3, Connersville, Ind.

2.22.12
My Dear Lena: Heard from a
recent letter that you have a
new auto. Congratulations. How
does this blizzard seem in country
Wed. a.m. hundreds of women [?]
week had to walk through 14
or 15 in drifted snow, 10 to 15 [squares?]
to work. Only two car lines working
& they kept snow scrapers at work
on track all night  Y & F were lucky
in living on one of these lines.
Ill think I never seen a worse
blizzard. Love—Bal.

Lena’s Postcards #89 – Jennie

[Undated Christmas card from Lena’s mysterious friend Jennie]

Transcription:

(front) Your old friend Jennie

(back) Hope you are both
well and will
enjoy your Christmas

[Since the card references “you both” I would assume the card was written before John’s death in 1927.]
