Scope and content

Real-photo postcard with image of St. John's Church in Ellsworth, Wisconsin. The brick church has a bell tower and stained glass windows. There are several deciduous trees nearby and a little bit of another building can be seen next door. Date from postmark: Jul 10, 1954; mailed from Ellsworth, Wisconsin; carmine 2¢ John Adams stamp (design A278). Message: Addressed to Miss Emma Schumacher, Lakeside, Berrien County, Mich., c/o H.H. Swift. "Ellsworth, Wisconsin Dear Emma! Will write you a few lines before we leave for Elmwood. We're invited to the Schmidts for the Evening & had a surprise party this afternoon. A belated birthday party - they all brought lovely present[s] and we had a delicious lunch. I was really dumbfounded, had no idea, when all of a sudden a big bunch started to sing happy birthday. I happen[ed] to be in the little room writing. Everything looked lovely & everybody seems to be fine. Too bad you can't be here. Oh the fourth Helen & a girlfriend were here. Sunday we're going to have a surprise party on Berlyn their wedding. Everybody sends their best love, Fanise."
