Item 23 is a birthday card.

“Birthday Wishes
I hope my wish will really come true,
For I wish you a rousing good year
clear through.”


Addressed to Mr’s C. Tinker. This must have been hand delivered, there is no sign of a stamp or post mark.

Many Happy Birthdays
Mr & Mr’s C. Jacobs


There is a Jacobs family residing in Antioch Township which is listed on the 1920 and 1930 census. There is one child, with the first initial of C, Clarence, age 14 on the 1930 census.

Belle lived in the area until her death in August, 1948, so it is possible that this card was from Clarence and his wife. Or not.
