Handwritten annotation on verso reads: "55 Avenell Road, N. 29-2-'08 I wanted to write you a letter, but have had suck a lot to do, I find there isn't time before Prayer meeting; and as I haven't been able to go to P.M. for the last three weeks, I am sure you won't mind just for this once. Here is a p.c. of Canada which I promised you; don't you think it is pretty? Things are going on pretty well now; mother is better & Daisy- well, I never saw SO much improvement in anyone in one short week. As much love as if this were the longest letter I have ever written you, from Effie." Postcard is addressed to: "Mis J.G. Grafton "Belmont" Tividale Road, Tipton, Staffs." Verso is affixed with a British halfpenny green stamp and canceled with a postmark that reads: "Highbury S.O. 915 PM Fe 29 08."
