Sad Postcard Message: Cash All Gone

“Yours just received. Send James Horne’s address to someone else. I can not send even a 5c gift, I’m doing more now than I’m supposed to do + have to drop all my pals + clubs I’m not well + cash all gone. And I never joined your club. unless someone else, did it thinking I wanted to. I didn’t. I’m sorry but if I had stamps could send a hanky or two. yours with best wishes. (Mrs.) Jenny Nyberg.”

All of the grammatical errors are the way they were on the card, I didn’t forget to proofread! 🙂 This postcard message shows that there were pen pals back in 1948, but sadly Jenny could not keep going with her clubs. 😦 She sent this card to Mrs. Edith Bevans (?) in Long Island, New York from Saint Petersburg, Florida.

    We forget how hard it is for some people. Rarely do we get a message like this on an old postcard. Thanks for sharing, Maria.
