Very recently, IÂ posted the story of Mrs. Jennie Sweigart and her mysterious correspondent, "guess".
Shortly thereafter, I recalled seeing another card with an anonymous signature.Â I went in search of it, and found it among a collection of 'comic cards".
Here is the card from "Friend X".
Â Nellie Mattax lived in Sharon, Pennsylvaia, a small city northwest of Pittsburgh and very near the Ohio border.
It was October of 1911 when NellieÂ recieved a postcard bearing the picture of a soldier and his girlfriend.
The card bore the comic legend, "Shoulder Arms".
The card is cheaply printed, and the surface has many scratches and tears -some of which have been repaired digitally.
The message on the reverse included information about the correspondent's health, and wishes for Nellie's well-being.
The card was signed, "Friend X".
The date is Octobe 23 or 28 of 1911.
The location is blurred.
Mrs. Nellie Mattax
69 Logan Ave.
I am well and hoping
this card will find
you all the same.
