    Postcard reads: Dear Sister [Idonia Thompson]
    We received your letter and was glad to hear from you. Here you can see how Nancy looks in the dress you sent her. It had bows on it but she pulled them off before we got to take her picture.
    This leaves us all well. Hope it will find you all the same. With love from us all. Your brother [Chancy Burton].
