Cleary Business College – 1910


Cleary Business College, Ypsilanti, Mich;  4609.

This post card was written, but apparently not sent.  It is addressed to Miss Mae Wright, Redford, Mich,   R.F.D #4

“Ypsi. 3-25-10  Dear Cousin, I received your card.  I was very glad to hear from you.  Yes, I think I will be out to Grandma’s [Esther Jenks Lee’s] for Easter.  I don’t know when I will go to work.  Maybe I won’t go.    Your Cousin, Lee Weaver.”

This card explains a lot of the previous cards being post marked in Redford when the family lived in Southfield.   There was no post office in Southfield at the time and all mail was handled R.F.D.  No idea why Grandpa never mailed the card, but it is great to see that his distinctive handwriting style was well on the way to maturing by the age of 17.
