Tlhis card was mailed from Big Piney, MO, December 10, 1908. The title "American Beauties" must refer to the roses. The message reads, "hellow Mandy how are you standing the times. we are all well. Your Friend Nannie Lane." There were many Lanes in the Big Piney area and Amanda probably knew most of them from their visits to Waynesville, which is the county seat of Waynesville. George Lane, Sr. was also the county Collector.
