The Card, addressed to a Mr. Radcliffe Cochran in Hayden Lake, Idaho, reads as follows:

” July 3rd Dear Rad ~ glad to hear from you after so long silence, hardly knew where you were. Why are you coming to the coast? It’s awful cold here & the 4th of July I’ll celebrate of a picnic on Bainbridge Island, where will you? Have a good time. I guess I’ll teach this fall at last at l-a-s-t ! Write again. Your old friend, Gram”

Postage was just one cent.
