This postcard features a black and white image of the First Presbyterian Church and Manse in West Point, Mississippi. The church, on the left, features a bell tower at the entrance, arched stained glass windows. The manse, or minister's residence, is a two story house with a rounded front porch and a small second story balcony. A sidewalk in front connects the church and manse. "Fannie Haine" is written in the upper right of the image. The title of the card is printed along the bottom edge of the card. The back of the postcard is addressed to Mrs. W. V. Baily in Delavan, Illinois. The card is postmarked West Point, Miss., May 27, 1911 and a green, one cent Benjamin Franklin postage stamp is in the upper right corner. An inscription is written on the left half of the card. [see transcription field]
Dear Sister I wish I could be with you on the twenty eight but if I can not in person I will surely be in min. And dear sister may you have many more hapy birthdays. Your loving siser F. M. Haines [sic]
