Title

Woman Reads Message and Other Group Parties

Description

The card is separated by a holly leaf into two scenes. To the left, a woman in a yellow dress with her hair pinned up reads a card. To the right, a well-dressed group of two men and two women sits around a table making a joyful toast. The message at the top reads "Christmas Post Card for Drummers / 'Tho far away, my thoughts to-day / Are of you, my dear, and home: / Stern duty parts two loving hearts / And sends me forth to roam. / The season's joys for you and the boys / Your wandering hubby - alone!"
