Handwritten text on back of card: Dear Marion: Just received the bunch of such beautiful cards. Many thanks for them. Will have to hustle myself around and find something to make adequate returns. My friend was in the navy before and during the World's War. Will show him the U.S. harbor soon and ask him if it recalls the days gone past. Best wishes, As ever, "Myrt"
