This Little Bear Bakes Pies,1912


American Post Card, "Busy Bears" Series No. 79. Published by The Ullman Mfg. Co., New York. Postmarked April 1912. I will look for more of these bears.


Can your Teddy Bear do this? Englewood letter was nothing they had found the lost check. Too bad you are having all that trouble. Can't say I like the job of doing nothing, too much time to think. It will be better when the kid comes I hope. Lots of love.

That's my approximate translation of the cramped handwriting. And who added that big "Not!"? Could that be Ruth's commentary on her friend's post? And I assume the friend is awaiting the  birth of her child, "the kid." Hmmm.
