An Easter Greeting – 1914

Easter1914

An Easter Greeting.  Sing. World of mine, and let the wondrous music of  thy voice fill all the world with light, sing and rejoice for in thy risen Lord love hath dispelled the thought of night.    Printed in Germany.

Post marked Redford, Mich.  Apr 10, 1914.  Addressed to Mr. and Mrs. Lemuel [and Effie Lee] Weaver, 92 Tireman Ave., Detroit, Michigan.

“Hoping this finds you on the gain, and when you get well enough come out here.  Wish it was warm enough so I could come in, am anxious to see Aunt Rose [Roseanah Weaver Fisher].  Best Easter Wishes for all.  Grandma Lee [Esther Jenks Lee]”

This post card was written by my Great Great Grandmother to my Great Grandparents – Effie was Esther’s daughter.   Aunt Rose was Great Grandpa Weaver’s sister.

This is the first of Grandpa’s Easter post cards.  This one probably dates from the early 1914-1916 time frame.    The cross and lilies are both raised to give them a three dimensional look.

Another of the unused post cards from when Grandpa Lee was stationed near Syracuse.  Can you tell that newlywed Lee missed Florence by his choice in cards?
