“Dear Brother, My wish for you is a Happy and Successful New Year. I wish we could all be together the 25. Rose [Roseanah Weaver Fisher] is with me yet she is not well has trouble with her back and so nervous. Christeen [Christiana Weaver Rinehart Schwartz]”
There is no indication as to when Aunt Teen sent this to Great Grandfather Lemuel Weaver. Aunt Rose, their sister, was ill for a very long time and outlived Great Grandfather Weaver. This card is interesting in that it appears that glitter was manually applied to it by Aunt Teen.

This card was to Great Grandfather Lemuel Weaver from Great Grandmother Effie Lee Weaver and Grandpa Lee. There is no date on the card but the postage requirement is a clue that it was pre-1917: One cent stamp for United States, Canada, and Mexico. Two cent stamp for all other countries.

“Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year is the wish of Sister Christeen [Christiana Weaver Rhinehart].”
This card probably predates Aunt Teen’s marriage to Uncle Charlie Shwartz since it was printed in Germany and the postage requirement states: Domestic, Cuba, Canal Zone, Hawaii, Mexico, Philippines, Puerto Rico One Cent, Foreign Two Cents. Aunt Teen was Great Grandfather Lemuel Weaver’s sister and Great Grandmother Effie Lee Weaver’s sister-in-law.
In the collection it is quite unusual since the picture is glossy. All of the others are matte.

“Dear Nephew, I hope you will have a Merry Xmas and a happy new year and don’t be fickle minded about the girls. Aunt Rose [Roseanah Weaver Fisher]”
I have no idea when Aunt Rose sent this to Grandpa Lee, but there was more than just a Christmas message here! Aunt Rose was Great Grandfather Lemuel Weaver’s sister and she lived in Columbus, Ohio. The Weaver and Koontz families were close friends. Possibly Grandpa Lee was giving Grandma Florence the business and Aunt Rose was reprimanding him?
The postage requirement on the card is the only clue as to the dating of it: 1 cent to United States, Canada or Mexico. 2 cents to all other Countries. This would indicate it was before 1916.
