Postcard sent from Belle Rive, IL in 1909 
(per the postmark) 
to my grgrgr grandmother, Lois Hughey, who was 
then living with a daughter in Kansas City, MO. 

The card reads: 

"Dear Folks,  Dont know any news so will just send this card 
broke my leads hated it as bad. 
Love to all,   Sallie" 

Not sure if it's signed Sallie, Jollie or something else.
