"I know a little lady. With eyes of bright blue. With cheeks so round and rosy, and a heart that's warm and true. Her smile is sweet and sunny. But there's mischief lurking there. She's full of fun and witchery. From foot to golden hair. She's far more dear and precious. Than treasured wealth of mine. And everyday the whole year through. She's my little valentine. From your friend - Mason Bowen Stowers" - Handwritten on back of postcard, postmarked from Stowers, N.Dak. Feb 11, 1911. Addressed to Miss Dorothy A. Reeves, Wenatchee, Washington, L.B. 537.
