This postcard, postmarked December 24, 1918 in Portland, Indiana, was sent to my paternal great-aunt, Vera (Haley) Stuber, by her sister, Clara Elnora Haley.

The Ruth mentioned is my grandmother, Ruth Haley.  The George Metzner mentioned is an unidentified Metzner relative.  Gay Bergman was a distant relative of the family through the Metzner side, and was a contemporary of Vera.
