Old - Time Valentines

A literary blog of connection & coincidence;
custom & ceremony
My Uncle Earl was born in 1935, so I'm guessing that this sweet
Valentine from his second cousin "Lois Josephine" (b 1929)
was sent sometime in the late 1930s or early 1940s.

Earl's full name was "Earl James Lindsey."
I never knew anyone to call him "James" or "Jimmie."
And as far as I know, Lois was always called "Josie."

I guess the moral to this story is:
feel free to address and sign
your Valentines however you want!
