The card is inscribed and is addressed to Miss Emma Mims in Bessemer, Alabama.
Monday 19/1908 Dear Cousin Emma:--I told Aunt Ella that I thought she sure played a mean trick on me. I was the one that hurried home for her and then she did not come. I had made my plans to stay until Saturday and she asks me to go home Friday so I told her I would and then had to come home all alone. My home folks did not look for me much until Saturday night. I am sorry she got left. I certainly did enjoy my day with you all. Now it is your time to come so am goin to look for you. With lots of love to you all I remain your cousin, Boyce Oarle B[?] [sic]
