Physics Building and Orton Hall, Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio.  21514N.  Pub. by W. S. Harriman, Columbus, Ohio.

Post marked Columbus, Ohio. Jun 28, 1920.  Addressed to Mrs. Lee W. [Florence Koontz] Weaver, 92 Tireman Ave, Detroit, Mich.

“Hey Florence, My fiance with her mother and sister will be in Detroit the last of the week or first of next.  They will call on you some afternoon or they may call you up.  If you can you should see them.  They may not even call but f they do please show your S.I.L. a good time if it is not trouble to you.  I am on my way to school studying analytical geometry in Summer School.  H.K. [Henry Allen Koontz]”

In 1920, Uncle Heine was still in college.  I assume his fiance was his first wife, Helen Reed. They were not married until 1923.  Uncle Heine in an earlier post card made mention that he was pre-med.  His penmanship would have fit right in.   As it turns out, he became a Pharmacist and then a politician.   He served on the Columbus City Council and was one of the Franklin County Commissioners.
