Marquette Kansas - M. E. Church, New Bridge, Mo. Pac. Depot, Sw. Luth. Church, Washington North June 3-09. Dear Friend: Well I tho't you never would send a card as you promised. Guess you are glad to get back to Dwight among your old friends. I suppose you would have a better time in Marquette when you come again cause you would be better acquainted. Herman has not teased any lately. So I am almost lonesome. Ha-Ha. Art Carlson Miss Alma Erickson, Junction City, Kans.
