Transcription

[front of the postcard] Jackson can't beat this much. [back of the postcard] Your card came came [sic] days ago and I was dee-lighted to get it. I can't say when I'll make Jackson a visit. I hope sometime this summer anyway. Seems as if summer will never come in earnest though for it is cold here today.
