True Friendship's Chain, Strong As Iron to Mrs. H. Williams, Detroit, Michigan, 1911

[Postmarked] 1911 [the rest unreadable]

[To]  Mrs. H. Williams
Detroit, Mich.
c/o Harper Hospital

Dear May,
We are all on the go.
Almost cooking these hot days.
Good Bye
Aunt Mary


  1. According to Wikipedia:

    "Established in 1863, Harper is among the oldest U.S. medical teaching institutions.

    Nursing became professionalized in the late 19th century, opening a new middle-class career for talented young women of all social backgrounds. The Harper Hospital School of Nursing, begun in 1884, was a national leader. Its graduates worked at the hospital and also in institutions, public health services, as private duty nurses, and volunteered for duty at military hospitals during the Spanish-American War and the two world wars."

    Perhaps May Williams was a nurse there? I hope she wasn't a patient!
