We’re all OK and having fine time. You should have seen Uncle Houston fishing for trout. We saw some wonderful scenery on trip 140 mi. north of Appleton. We’re leaving for Barbee tomorrow I think. Be home for fair.

Lena’s Postcards #29

HACK1910s G. F. Powers

 

Undated card signed by G.F. Powers & family. This was most likely the Rev. Granville Frank Powers of the Christian Church. Lena was a member of the Christian Church, and her brother Eugene was also a minister in the church.

Dear Grandma,
Wish you were here on my birthday. Papa gave me $10 and mama made me a nice large kite, a baseball suit, a wading suit, candy, and a birthday cake with ice cream. I flew my kite all after noon & had a lot of fun –
Lots of love – Willard

Dear Grandma
Something all rolled up came from Connersville this morning. Santa will open it tomorrow night.
Yours
Willard


In 1910, Willard was only 3 years old. It is likely that the postcard (and the one posted yesterday) were written by Willard’s father, Huston Hackleman.

Dear Friends,

We girls have been to Marion to-day. Took in the play at the “Grand.” When we get warm after our cold ride from the station I think we shall retire. Expect you have looked for this before but you know girls are neglectful when they are away from home having a good time. Don’t know when I shall come home. Best wishes to you both,

Bertha
