Dear Sister – law. Must answer your letter which I got long time ago but could not get around any sooner. We are all well and hope you are all the same. The weather today is pretty fair well how is the world using you out there. Anna this is the Lidgerwood fire on the other side. Frank is there to he is standing by the post and has an iron pole over his shoulder. This picture was taken 9 days after the fire. Well Anna what is the news around there; none here so far. Well I have very little space left so will close with best love to you all. And write sooner than I. Mary
This was obviously a real photo made into a card -- Annie's brother Frank is in the picture.
