Hello, Bell. How are you? Am well, only a bit lonesome you know. Saw [Emil] go by today. Might be down Sunday. Answer please. Theresa.
Postcard: Lovers in the moonlight
As you remember, Emil wondered why Bell didn’t come watch him play baseball the Saturday before and sent a pouting postcard on Tuesday. Then he did what every red-hot suitor does: he got Bell’s friend to intervene.
In this installment of our postcard love story, Emil gets Bell’s friend Theresa to write a note the next day mentioning she saw Emil and using the words “a bit lonesome.”
