Happy Birthday, Mary!

Nov 21 - 1911
Dear Cousin May
I suppose you wonder why you did not get cards from us
But I forgot all about it till it was too late
But they say better late than never 
So we hope you had a Happy Birthday

[I'm not sure of the signature.  Perhaps it is Lettie & Lew Walter??]

Walked across the square yesterday and found this lovely postcard.  No stamp and no apparent postmark.  Was it included in a package perhaps?  What this scan doesn't show too clearly is that the stripes behind the rose are metallic and a chevron design.  Quite lovely.

Mary, hope it is a happy one for you.
