‘You try and come down Sat. night…come down…come down…please’

1920s postcard. Private Collection.

1920s ‘I Want You To Love Me’ postcard. Private Collection.

A sweet American postcard with an even sweeter, insistent missive written on the back.

The poor boy had it bad for ‘Mary Nelson’. The message was clear by his choice of postcard, and even clearer by the one-track message on the back. He lost his head and kept on repeating himself, wanting very much to see the object of his infatuation on Saturday or Sunday night.

Try to come down...try to come down...

Try to come down…try to come down…

I hope Miss Mary Nelson responded favorably! She probably shook her head at the spelling mistakes. :)
