A little iambic pentameter for the New Year:
May the New Year be like a garden fair With flowers of joy, and free from weeds of care; Good fortune, as the smiling sun to bless Your every effort with complete success.
This card was sent to Florence Williamson at her parents' home near Williamson, Iowa in honor of the 1910 New Year, postmarked Snyder, Oklahoma, Dec. 23, 1909. The message says Hello, Florence! Here is wishing you a Merry Xmas and Happy New Year. We are having zero weather with snow for several days. We are all well & hope this will find you all the same. With love and best wishes, 1909, Theresa Wiginton, Snyder, Okla.
