S.S. Harvard -
Friend Myrtle-
Received the card and letter all.  Q[?]H. was glad to hear from you once again.  But was sorry to hear that you think of going to the Bend this winter just because I am coming.  All the young people must go to work.  Too Bad, well good Bye.  Best Regards, B.H.W.

  1. It looks like a steam boiler of some sorts in front of the drill derrick.

    I found Myrtle here: It appears her mother remarried - hence the c/o Charles S Worster which was confusing at first.

    I'm not sure what the S. S. Howard refers to, perhaps a steam ship on the Great Lakes help to deliver the mail?

    I suspect B H W is a Worster. I think a (half) cousin. I see a Bennie H Worster living in Northern Liberty, Indiana...
