What would your reaction be if you received a postcard with this message?
This is only *one* of the Daw family
other one has got worms the other fleas, by gosh, x
I’m going to pull out.
Just what happened to this person to send this cryptic message? Was it a jab at those people? Was it a disgruntled lady about to give up looking for a potential suitor in one family? With a little bit of imagination I could write a short with this postcard. It gave me a chuckle.
I prefer RPPCs with writings on over the pristine ones. They’re like small windows into the lives of their owners; snippets of how people used to communicate their feelings.
Well, the worm and flea-free one of the Daw family is pretty good looking, wouldn’t you say? Or was his name Fred Ashman as was later annotated? Or is the sender Fred Ashman and those boys really had worms and fleas? Ah! Mystery unsolved. A little digging on ancestry sites may solve the identity of the sitter.
