The PostCard Note reads as follows:
Dear Maud: Such a pretty pretty card came from you
this morning, and I am so glad you let me know where
you are for I had a card all chosen for you but didn't
know where to send it. I had not heard from you before this
year and had wondered if you ever received the letter I
sent you last winter after  Christmas. Mr. Artha is spend-
ing Christmas Albany with Caleb's folks. This is Prudence's
last year in Grammar School. Can you believe it? Merry
Christmas to you.    Love,   Dec 22, 1916  Laura W. F.
