My Favorite Post Card Ever

Among my most prized possessions, is this Christmas post card from 1907. My Great great grandfather wrote this message to his infant son. Not long after this, my grandfather passed away from complications of diabetes. He left his sweet young wife and two young boys widowed and fatherless. He was a great man and loved his family immensely. This little card is an example of the sweet things he did for those he loved. The envelope on the front of the card has a tiny little message tucked inside. It reads, "Dear Little Milo, Santa Claus could not get just one Rocking Horse. But he will bring you two with a little seat in between. I think you will like it to play train with. Love, Santa C."
