You are looking at an identified postcard that was sent to MRS. HENRY SOVINE who was actually CAROLINE ANNA GILGEN SOVINE, wife of HENRY NORMAN SOVINE, Wells Co., IN.

The postcard is in pretty nice shape, please see scans.



The actual postcard reads as such: "Greetings from Mich" (on the front)

"Dear Sister: As I have no pretty Birthday postal will send you this one for I happen to think tomorrow is your Birthday, hope you are well. We are as ?, it is pretty cool, is raining now, write, CLARA"

The postcard was actually sent to "MRS. HENRY SOVINE, PLEASANTVILLE, IND., OCT. 27, 1913, from STURGIS, MI."




I have done some research on this postcard and this is what I've found:
