My Dear Pearl

My husband bought an old desk yesterday.
 
Turns out the drawer was filled with postcards.
I have collected postcards of Oklahoma scenes for nearly ten years
and feel that these fell into the right hands as
many were mailed to Oklahoma.
I was so touched by the posts.
This one from Long Beach, CA to Meridian, Oklahoma in what looks like the late 1920s...
 
My Dear Pearl,
I wish you could inhale some of this lovely cool sea breeze. I am sure it would make you well. Georgia wrote that you are better.
I am so glad. Lots of love, Ada
 
It seems that the writers always meant to show good humor.
Ada wrote on the cover regarding the fine Craftsman house,
"I haven't acquired one just like this one yet."
 
Here is to Pearl, Ada and Georgia.
