Greeting card-type penny postcard, mailed from Los Angeles, March 14, 1914.
Printed color halftone of artist drawing. Published by Samson Brothers of New York, which was in business from 1909-1919 and usually had its cards printed in Germany. But this one says "Made in U.S.A." (Maybe because of Europe's wartime difficulties, although the postmark predates the outbreak of war by a few months.)
Printed greeting reads: "Hurry up Bill, we want to get to Saugus, Cal. There's something doing."
Sent from "Elmer" to his sister, Miss Gladys(?) Peterson of 216 Hancock St., Holdrege, Nebraska, after spending a month in Saugus. Too bad he doesn't tell us what he was doing here. It will have to remain Elmer and Gladys' secret.
Your letters rec'd(.) Many thanks for same. Just got back from Saugus. Been there for a month. All is well here. Bye Bye Elmer.
