Back when I first started participating in Marie's postcard exchange, I commented that I had a chicken postcard somewhere. This week I finally found it!
"Marblehead Mass, Dear Sir. In answer to your inquiry will say that I could not make any reduction on larger lots, as my eggs and chicks are booked in advance. If you are in need of an early shipment kindly let me hear from you at an early date. Yours respectfully Chas Robinson."
Glued to the postcard is a newspaper clipping of a classified advertisement reading:
WYKOFF'S STRAIN of S. C. W. Leghorns, all great layers, all have free range and fed nature's way; these eggs hatch chicks that live; $1 set, $5 100; chicks 10 cents; cockerels $2; India Runner duck eggs, $2 11. CHARLES ROBINSON, Marblehead.Here are a couple of Chicken Plates from my clipping files.
Hope everyone is having a marvelous Postcard Friendship Friday!
