Grandmother 551-D. Written across the ribbon — I feel as old as I look.
Post marked Detroit, Mich. Jan 13, 1909. Addressed Mrs. Effie Weaver, Tireman Ave. Detroit.
“Dear Sister, I’m sending you my picture for you will not know me when you see me next time. I am getting along as well as I could expect I guess but it seems very slow. I can move my knee some but cn’t lift my foot up yet – am still in bed. Will let you hear again this week. Ettie [Marietta Lee Wright]”
Apparently, this was the 1909 version of sibling guilt giving. Aunt Ettie wanted Great Grandmother Weaver to know she was not doing well and feeling very OLD. Subliminal hinting. Also, notice the casual addressing. No street number, no cross street, yet the post card was delivered.
