Post marked Redford, Mich. Feb 13, 1915.  Addressed to Mrs. Effie L[ee] Weaver, 92 Tireman Ave., Detroit, Michigan.

“Dear Aunt,  Received the pkg. O.K. and thank you very much. Have my coat already to stitch. Am afraid our sleighing is going.  Had a great time Tues. eve.  24 in our load.  Don’t know if the bunch are going to the dance or not.  If they do I’ll surely have to go, too.  Hattie [Hattie Josephine Nacher Jenks, wife of Justin Rosenthral Jenks, Effie’s cousin] said that Kittie’s [Kittie Lorain Chapman Jenks, wife of Albert Arlington Jenks, Effie’s cousin and Justin’s ½ brother] is not better, poor girl.  Estelle W[right]”

Estelle packs a lot of information in a post card!  Kittie  did not get any better and died about a year later on 7 March 1916.  Albert Arlington and Justin Rosenthral were the sons of Leman Case Jenks, the brother of Esther Jenks Lee.
