[back of the postcard] So sorry I didn't get to see you as I was leaving Cal. [?] Expected you girls at the depot till the very last or would have run by to see you. Guess you had cards from Mr. Collis as he said he was sending you some. He wants some of the Park pictures--the girls [?] will remember "Dish & slight Shorly" as they didn't like him but he was nice to them too. Coming home I met a fellow [sic] [continued on the front of the card] from Greenville who was quite nice on the train [and] helped me two while away some of the time. I go back to B. Mt. Tues. There this session our so glad. Drop me a card from Pearl.
