Transcription of a
postal card collected by Patrick Feaster at an antique mall in Indiana. The
card was postmarked Dec. 17, 1910 in Arrowsmith, Ill. Addressed to Miss Velma
Bierbower in ArrowSmith. Sic "meet" omitted, "write in" instead of "write
it". Repeats "stating" and "Jesus' time" - both probably copying errors for
"starting" and "Jerusalem". Entered by DWV, 3/9/2007.
