A tree stands on the left side of the courthouse and sidewalk with wood scraps beside it runs in front.

[on the front] Velma and Eone left to-day to visit in Arkansas. Yes the "Northern Boundary" is all right and I see him quite often. This is familiar, isn't it? The Courthouse Christina McCormick [on the back] I was surprised to get your card. There isn't very much doing now but we had a fine time at the moonlight picnic Monday night. the Bachelor Maids keep up the social part for the girls. Love [sic]
