Peaches & Pears: To Emma Wilson, from Albert, Whitney, Texas, 1910

[Postmarked] [??] Texas, Jan 14,1910

[To] Miss Emma Wilson,
Whitney, Tex

Recd your nice card ok.  I think you are mistaken about me owing you a card.  I was first wondering why you did not ans. my card.  You surely don't get all of my cards.  Well What are you doing for yourself now?  I would like very much to see you. Guess you are as beautifull as ever.  I am working hard but seems like I progress slowly.  Ans. soon (Best wishes) Sincerely A. T. C.

[Someone, probably the sender, has written names across the fruit on the postcard.  On the peach: Emma.  On the pear:  Albert]


  1. Too cute! :)

    It looks like there is a good chance that Emma never married anyone.

    I think this is her... (daughter of Joe and Sallie who are also buried in the same cemetery.

  2. I'm not 100% sure, but I think Albert Thurman Chaney (b. 22 Jun 1888 in North Carolina) wrote this card. He is the son of Sidney and Bettie Chaney, and he marries his wife Faye sometime after 1917 when he filled in his WWI draft card but before 1920 (the handwritting matches!)
