Postcard shower request. For mother's birthday. U.S., 1912.

Sumner, Ill. Apr. 2. 1912.

Dear Friends:-

  Here is a view showing part of our "plant." I am trying to get up a card shower (or whatever you care to call it.) for mother. her birth day will be the 12th. Be pleased to have you people send a card. And wish you would tell Bruce about it, or send me his address. Will send you another view or two, for your trouble. If you have no mud and wish for some, will send you a few. We "sure" have lots of it: and lots of water too.
                                Your Friend
