Letter: Would like to read message on postcard

Paul Patton writes:
Larry Smith's favorite postcard from Helm, KY to Miss Ovaline Humble caught my attention and, at the same time, made me feel rather ancient myself since I was well acquainted with the recipient of this postcard mailed well over a century ago.

Miss Ovaline did attend Lindsey Wilson and became a school teacher. She married Jake McFarland of Rowena and I was their pastor at Jamestown Christian Church in the 1960's. They spent their lives in Russell County where they were great citizens and wonderful people to know.

I could not read the message as shown in ColumbiaMag and would appreciate it if Larry would read it to me. --Paul Patton
