Last month, my good friends Joe and Lisa gave me a small stack of vintage postcards for my birthday.

I’m going to post images of the fronts and backs of each postcard here, along with a transcription—or at least as accurate a transcription as I can come up with—of what’s written on each card.

Oh, and if anyone reading these posts has a different interpretation of what’s written, please feel free to post what you think they say in the comments section.

This is the seventh and final installment of the series.

DEAREST FRIEND,

YOUR BIRTHDAY CAKE, AS WE

This started with Emma… though I had her last name wrong,
