Description

This card features a full color illustration of a young girl painting "Give us our rites" on wall. She has also drawn a man hanging from a noose, the Statue of Liberty, and the slogan "Votes for Wimen." Behind her are an overturned baby carriage and a doll laying on the floor.

On the verso, the card is addressed to Miss Mildred Spicer 88 Arch Street Akron, Ohio, and postmarked April 24, 1920. The message reads:
Dear Mildred-Well, how goes it? Are you well, going to school and happy? This is surely a nice day, trying to make up for some of the bad weather, I guess. Have you any new clothes this spring? Expect to wear my new shirt tomorrow for the first time. Lots of love, [obstructed name]
