Title

Woman and Soldier Say Farewell

Description

In the center of the card, a girl in a blue dress and white apron is being held by a soldier in green with a sword. Behind them is a gated fense, trees, and flowers. The German print reads "[Morgen marschiren wir, :||: ade, :||: / Wie lieblich sang die Nachtigall, / Vor meinos Siobchens haus, / Vorklungen ist nun Sang und Schall, / Das Sieben ist nun aus. / [E]s [nufs] geschieden sein. Ade!" The general meaning is the man is marching to war and saying goodbye. There is handwriting on the card as well.
