Greetings From Eloise, Michigan: The Best Town on the Map

I suppose that whenever your town consists of an insane asylum complex and little else you have to hype it up pretty good. Especially so in 1912. Actually, I think this was a generic card that simply filled in a U.S. city per an order for the cards but that matters not.

I'm not sure if Lillian was a patient or an employee but she was caught off guard by Bert Miller's aforementioned postcard from Waldron, Michigan. Her over punctuation and writing suggests that she was a charge. Just the same, she shirked off Bert Miller like a fruit fly. Poor Bert.
