Did I Tell You I Love Roses? PFF!

Isn't it gorgeous? It's embossed with gold and it looks brand new! The front says it's copyrighted only 1912 by Heymann...that's the most information I've ever seen on a postcard so far. I tried to find more information on the artist and all I found was her postcards for auction or sale. Oh well, if anyone else knows anything, let me know.

The message the back is rather intriguing though. It's addresses to a Miss Ida Cuyle in Roseve, Nebraska, March, 1913. "I found the peace about the president of the United States. I can't say all of it now. I have said to the teacher. Lovely Raymond." Woodrow Wilson had just become president, so I wonder what the writer had to say about him. It may have been too much to write on such a small postcard or maybe he didn't want the whole world to read it. Whatever it was. it is a lovely postcard.

You gave us a nice puzzle. Was Raymond learning English with an article about the president of the USA and that Ida was his lovely teacher? Happy PFF.

It sounds like maybe he had to recite something at school, then forgot it later? Not sure, but it is intriguing. The postcard itself is exquisite.
