Mrs. J [?]. H. Thornton

[addressed to] Mr. JW Whitehead

postmark unreadable
probably in the 1910’s

Note: lead [gray] cloth sample glued to postcard. The typography is so Victorian-esque, although I think the postcard is later. (By the way, two family members have birthdays in the next couple of days, so I’ll take this opportunity to wish happy birthday to them both!)
