Transcription"R.W.P.C. Many thanks for photo card. Am sorry I do not have a Wheelock view to send. They are rather hard to get as it is a very small place. The 'Globe' club I spoke of has its headquarters in Germany. It is an international club with members in many countries. Would you like an app. blank? The Jolly Joker Club of Nashville, Tenn. is the best in America. It is also an international club, but is more concerned with U.S. & its colonies. Call again and let me know if you are interested in either of these clubs. Sincerely Wm. J. Adams, Route #1." - Handwritten on back of postcard, postmarked from Wheelock, N.Dak. Jul 10, 1913. Addressed to John O. Valla, Foxholm, N.Dak.
"J.J. 7844 William J. Adams, Wheelock, No. Dak." stamped on back of postcard.
