USPS Postal Card UX12 cancelled in Carthage, South Dakota, dated through message: February 15, 1900. Addressed to Prof Robinson, city. From H. Reeves. Carthage South Dakota Postal Card UX12. Prof Robinson from H Reeves February 15, 1900. Postal Card from H. Reeves to Prof Robinson Carthage, South Dakota. 5.5 X 3.25 inches. Condition notes: very minor softening of sharp edges, age-toning and light soil. One corner with 3 light creases. Carthage, Miner County, South Dakota in 1900 was a town with future and promise. Today the town has a website with pizzazz and positive attitude, boasting a population of just under 150 residents. The Postal Card offered here, UX12, a one-cent prepaid card with Thomas Jefferson and laurel leaf border imprint, has an unreadable year on the cancellation, but can be dated with the message which included the date, February 15, 1900. Addressed to one Prof(essor) Robinson, city, from one H. Reeves, it is interesting to conjecture what might have prompted such a message. I am not above (the use) of cold water. Dear Sir. A little bird told me I was to be dunked tomorrow night by yourself, my mother and Mrs. M. I will let you (know?) I am a seeker of revenge and there are others wth me. H. Reeves. At first I thought the dunking might be a prank, but that didn't really make sense. Why would three adults dunk anyone in February with its cold, winter weather? My next thought was that perhaps h. Reeves just may have spent the cold months snug and warm in his long underwear, and was much in need of a cleansing to "clear the air."Always! Free Standard Shipping in USA!
