"Change your bait"



Apparently this is a soldier's postcard sent from Fort Riley, Kansas in March, 1914 to his parents in Clear Lakes, Idaho.



He writes: "This is what I tell all of them now, as I find it pays in the long run + is better than having a nun get me..."
I'm surprised this racy postcard got through the mail.

Very nice postcard with a clear cancellation

Where on earth do you find such treasures.

Thanks, but it must be suitable for a family forum. The forum guidelines are that it would have to pass the test: "Would you feel comfortable having your 10-year-old son or daughter looking at it." I think the one I posted passes that test, but if there are objections I will take it down.
