This postcard features a black and white image of a building at Belhaven College in Jackson, Mississippi. The building is a large, white, two story, clapboard structure with a long porch and balcony in front and a shorter porch and balcony on the side. A cupola is in the center of the roof and two dormers line the front of the roof and one dormer is on the side above the side porch and balcony. A tall tree is in front of the front entrance and a large bush is in front of the side entrance. The title of the card is printed along the bottom of the image. The back of the card is addressed to Miss Ophelia Fox in Vicksburg, Mississippi. The card is postmarked Asylum, Miss., July 31, 1909 and a green, one cent Benjamin Franklin postage stamp is placed upside down in the upper right corner of the card. An inscription is written on the left half of the card. [see transcription field]


July 30, 1909 I have been so busy ever since I was in Vicksburg that I haven't had a spare moment but want to write you a letter and tell you a whole lot of things that I have thought about you--really this is true. I received your card and was more than delighted to hear from you. I am going to visit Vicksburg again before very long. Be sure and let me know when you will be in jackson. I am yours sincerely, E. D. Greaves
