Postcard reads: To Mr. Jerry Mashek
G.Carbon, Ill, Nov 25, 1909
Dear Bro.,
I received a letter from Ida yesterday saying they were coming, but I suppose you known it by this time, so I’ll be looking for you. How about Tod, tell him to let me know if they are coming. Hoping this finds you all well and Pa still improving.
