This color postcard features a two story white building with a cupola on the left end. Tall pine trees stand in front of and beside the building. The blurred title in the lower right corner identifies the building as "Belhaven College, Jackson, Miss." The back of the postcard identifies the item as a souvenir postcard, printed in Great Britain, and provides publisher information. A green one cent postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner and the card is postmarked Jackson, Mississippi, October 2, 1907. The card is inscribed and is addressed to Miss Grace C. Holmes in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Well, I'm here in the sunny south at last. It's pretty warm yet, but quite cool in the evenings and early mornings. How are you getting on in your teaching? I hope successfully. We begin tomorrow. The scholars are arriving slowly. Curious and interesting insights on every hand. Will be glad to hear from you. Kind regards to all. W. T. Beketley
