This black and white picture postcard features a white two story house with a rounded front porch lined with white columns. Trees surround the house and an iron fence runs in front of it. The title in the lower left corner identifies the house as "Governor's Mansion, Jackson, Miss." The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides indication for correspondence and address placement. A green one cent postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner and the card is postmarked Jackson, Mississippi, March 18, 1908. The card is inscribed and is addressed to Miss Alene Barry in Roodhouse, Illinois.
Dear Letetia, I intended to write before I left home. I missed Connection here and will stay over night here. Mama and boy in Carlinville. Yours, Char. [sic]
