Transcription"Dear Marguerite - I arrived safely and my whole family came to meet me. My cold has made me sick for 2 days but I am much better now. Isn't that strange about Mr. Patten? He is a queer boy I think. No wonder he knew so much about embroidery. Parker is very well and glad to see me. Will write more before long. Lovingly, Myra. My new home." - Handwritten on back of postcard.
