"Hands across the sea" postcard #1
"No charm you'll find in deserts drear
Or lands of ice and snow
Whilst dear ones keep their love so rare
The Homeland must sweeter grow
Bid farewell then to alien climes
Nor seek some happier land
No joys you'll meet, or, love's so sweet
As wait here, with heart and hand."
Pencilled message reads:
"Dear Cousin Mary,
It is long since we heard from you & we were all glad to hear from you again & hope that you will be able to keep up the correspondence once more. Although my sister is not able to write to you I shall if possible try to do so in her place. Yours in love, Rose."
