D Davidson in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
[front of the postcard] This is our church but the snow is only in the picture. It only rains, rains, here. [back of the postcard] We were so enthralled in Bro Demetrius letter telling of your Christmas and the beautiful dinner. All send love and best wishes for the New Year to ""You all"" Lovingly Jessie H. D. [sic]
