Postcard from Ruth in Berlin, Germany to her mother at their Buffalo, New York home.
Pension Herzberg (Familien – Hotel) Berlin W 35, Potsdamer Privatstr 121 b
Inh: Frau Dr. Weihe
I believe the date of this card should be about the same as the George Washington Luxury Liner Log … 1914, but I can’t make out the date. This card was sent in November & the George Washington Log Card shows May … but trips of this nature take months and months typically.
The date is troubling though as it is the dateline associated with the First World War, which gives a better insight as to the request and message of Ruth to her mother:
Will you write the Literary Digest – New York City, 445 23rd Street (address on the paper) and tell them to forward the subscription to me – Care of American Exp Co. Paris? I have written them but it apparently has no effect – and I very much want the copies here. We have had no mail for almost ten days and can’t understand why . We stayed at the Kaiserhop Monday night where her olson had engaged a room for us at …(?) American price we could not have gotten in had the room not been engaged. How do you like our Pension? I sent Mrs Graves letter to you to ….(?) … and asked for her address.Love Ruth
