Wish You Were Here, from Gene Carr

Here's a St. Patrick's Day card from Gene Carr. It was published by the Rotograph Company, and numbered 'F.L. 189'. It is undated, but was postally used in 1908.

The message on the reverse is rather interesting. A friend who signs himself only as "Authority" is warning Mr. Delmer Homer of Cortland NY that a mutual friend of theirs,  of the female persuasion, has targeted him for matrimony. He is warned by "Authority" to beware of her 'bear trap.'


It is dated- note the copyright in the lower right corner. the type font the title is set in seems to be one Rotograph had made for them.
Oops! Time to check that eyeglass prescription...
