This beautiful card is not done justice by the scanning process. On all the leaves, star and candle light there is a shimmery coating that makes the satin and flat paper finish and the colors appear to glow. The details are wonderful! Letter inside follows ~~
1936-1221 – Dora A S Lindsey &
Cox Lindsey to Susan Sherwood Weber & family Frances
Dear Family – So fast the season roll around. I’m much stronger but have not been back to work. The girls are all working during the holidays and if they continue to do so I’m really needed at home. Mother Lindsey here for the holidays but I would not think of letting her do here. We are the kind of people who make too much work. Guy still selling cars. Keeps him busy long hours to get his share of business.
Will try to get a real letter off to you soon, tho there is little more to tell than this holds. Meanwhile our sincere loving prayers are for a very happy season and a prosperous year to you all.
Dear Susan and family: - I am down here for a visit and to spend Xmas with the family. Rather took them by surprise but I’m having a lovely time. Here’s wishing you all a very “Merry Christmas” and “Happy New Year”
