Dear Folks,


We are in this burg (town or city) today.

Are feeling fine.

Have seen marrcons(?), Runnels (a narrow channel in the ground for liquid to flow through) and leookus (?).

Say Papa, will you go to Lincoln & Tharp (hardware company in Lushton, Nebraska) and get us a rear Ford tire 30 - 3 ½?  Racine Tires are $23.50 here.

Send it immediately if it is less than $23.50 by express




Editor’s notes:

Howard Maurice Boren and Irma Mae Salmen were married on June 22, 1921.

Howard was 23 years of age and Irma 19.

This postcard may have been sent from their honeymoon.
