Two bites to a cherry – 1912


Two bites to a cherry a great game – try it.  Reinthal & Newman, Pubs. N. Y.  No 161.  Entered Stationers Hall, London.

Post marked Saginaw West Side, Mich.  Aug 5, 1912.  Addressed to Mr. Lee Weaver, 94 Tireman Ave., Detroit, Mich.

“316 No. Bond St. W.S.    Hope the weather is better for boating in Detroit than here.  I always said I would like to live in a small place but am changing my mind considerably.  Find out if Minnie is home.  Never heard from her. If g. 2 I/6 L/ F.E.O”

Well!  The ending sentence is pure code.  Apparently, the writer did not not want the postman to be privy to to total message — nor Great Grandma Effie Weaver, Lee’s mother.  This appears to be the “other” Florence in Grandpa’s sparking days.   Rather bold post card for 1912.   A follow up on yesterdays’ card.
