This black and white postcard features a church with a steep pitched roof, an arched entrance with a steep pitched roof, and arched saint glassed windows on either side of the entrance. A cross is at the top of the entrance roof pitch and a white picket fence is in front of the church. A person is standing on the front porch. "Holy Innocent' Episcopal Church, Como, Miss." is beneath the image of the church and fundraising information is on the right side of the card. The fundraising information reads "The Ladies' Guild of the Holy Innocents' Episcopal Church earnestly request your subscription to THE LADIES' HOME JOURNAL or THE SATURDAY EVENING POST--or both. A liberal part of the money will go to our Guild, and possibly a large cash prize. Will you assist us? Would not THE JOURNAL or THE POST make splendid gifts to your friends? If a renewal, to be started at the expiration of a present subscription, please state that fact. The subscription price on each magazine is $1.50. Kindly make check or money order or express order payable to Mrs. John J. Craig, and mail to her at Como, Miss., or to me. Kindly help us? Sincerely yours," 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 place in the upper right corner and the card is postmarked Como, Mississippi, November 29, 1907. The card is inscribed and is addressed to Miss Lucile Lynn in Hernando, Mississippi.


My dear Lucille, Don't you want me to order these magazines for you? We certainly enjoyed your little visit. Come down again soon. Lovingly, Cousin Caddie. [sic]
