To Helen in the Hospital

It's just a few days before Christmas and Miss Helen Lowe is in the hospital. Here's the message Hazel sent her:
Dec 22
Dear Helen, -
This is one fine day. I suppose you come home in a day or two. Wish I might drop in to see you to-day.
Loving friend Hazel.


  1. Oh... I don't know why, but I think this card is extremely lovely. I would be so pleased to receive this while in hospital, much better than a Hallmark! Karin

  2. This is a beautiful, sweet card!

    It is such a shame we don't send postcards so much anymore! I keep trying to remember that in the early 1900s they were probably equivalent to today's email!

  3. Would the Burns of the Burns Hospital be the name of the person it was named after or a description of the type of cases it treated I wonder?

  4. Karin,
    I know exactly what you mean. Normally I go for the more serious stuff, but I found this one enchanting.

    You're right. These are better than email...and imagine having mail delivered TWICE a day as they did back then.

    Although this hospital no longer exists or was renamed, I am convinced it was named after a person.

  5. Neat postcard! I attended a few postcard shows back in the 1990s, and what struck me was that for a few pennies, you could communicate a brief thought on a wonderfully printed piece of art-in-miniature. I still do that once in a while these days, and many people still seem to like a handwritten postcard. Thanks, Christine. Jack/Youngstown

  6. I also think it is a lovely card, our little messenger birds bringing words of kindness and trailing sweet flowers- I hope Helen left the window open...

  7. I love the "Best Wishes" card. You can feel the emotions of the sender.

    Have a great day, Christine.
