The second postmark is Chattanooga, Tennessee, August 8, 1908. The third postmark is illegible. The card is inscribed and is addressed to Miss Emily Hajos in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
[front of the postcard] Reached here from Tuscaloosa last night. Fine place and beautiful country--If you write me address either York-Demopolis or Selma, Ala. Will be here for a few days only. [back of the postcard]This is certainly the land of cotton and its beautiful, I think. Had a dandy time at Tuscaloosa and hated to leave there. Wish you would say something and answer. Gene
