Lives in Letters: Valentines Postcard

Oh, this is too wonderful. A postcard from 1907, with a secret message hidden inside the red suede mitten.
I was barely able to open the note without destroying it, but I got it.

Message Cupid Never Sent
Lynxville, Wisconsin
December 28, 1907

Addressed to
Mr. Clyde H
Platteville, Wis.

Written on secret note:

Hello Cupid. How's this for a card?
You see we even have Cupids in L-.
We girls are having fine times; were
out to the Xmas trees last eve and Mon
night a crowd of us are going to Seneca
to a dance, tho of course I shall not
dance. How's Fritz making it. I bet he
don't care half as much about the
restaurant now. Ha! Ha! Well my
time is limited so Ta Ta Ellie Olsen the end.
