I always try to write postals to the sick people so suppose you are sick now. I have just written a long letter to Mrs Brown and another to Aunt Sarah.

The 1908 and 1909 cards above were sent at an appropriate time with an appropriate message. The 1910 postcard, however, was sent in July with a rather odd message. I think I would find this one insulting. I wonder what the sender's intention was...
