Miss Ethel Greenleaf of Mt Vernon, Washington received her fair share of postcards, but it appears as if she had an aversion to returning correspondence.
In 1907, Marguerite Heritage tried a bargaining approach with Ethel:
Dear Ethel: How are you anyway - Write because I like to hear from you - did you get my other postals - Send me some from out west and I will send you some from here
In 1908, Billy tried the friendly and optimistic angle:
Father used to have a farm 1/2 mile from this old mill and I used to go fishing there when I was a kid. Am expecting a letter soon. is it on the way. Got a few dandy postals lately from friends nearby. Hope I will be out there soon. Yours--Billy
In 1910, L.K. Stelzig was just plain annoyed:
Don't you think you owe me a letter, or a card. It is nearly two months since I heard from you. Yours, L.K. Stelzig
