"Dear friend, - How do you like my school house? Reached home in time for supper the day we were up there. It was all ready too, as my aunt was here, which saved me the work. Was none the worse for the long chilly drive. Was over to my next door neighbor's for dinner today and have also been invited out for supper. Hope to hear from you soon. Best regards to Mr. D and you. your friend, Maybelle H. Mrs. T. E. Drinkwater, Stanley, N. Dak."--Handwritten on back of postcard.
