Boston Common Ice Skating Article Letter Home, Boston Common Ice Skating


This postcard was mailed on September 8, 1914 and destined for Monroe, New Hampshire. The letter on the reverse relates to a cold spell that year (including Boston Common), and is quoted as follows:

"Tues. A.M.,

Good Morning Kattie, What are you doing today? It is real cold here, very much like Fall. Along the country roads the leaves are scarlet, I don't like it to see it so early. Makes the Fall and Winter so long. Well, write when you can and I'll write later. Be good and don't work too hard. Perhaps we can play Euchre [a card game] before the snow comes.

Lovingly, Edith."
