Michigan: In a scary yet surprising tale of events, a woman in Michigan, US found an old postcard in her letterbox that was mailed almost a century ago.
A week ago, Britanny Keech, received an old postcard with her regular mails and bills in her mailbox. However, she did not pay much heed into them then and got busy with kids and life in general.
But, when she decided to check the postcard, which is not so common these days, she was stunned to receive a Halloween themed postcard dated 100 years ago.
“I thought it was very peculiar that I was receiving a postcard because nobody sends postcards anymore nowadays. I went ‘OK, this is different,'” Keech told CNN.
The postcard was dated October 29, 1920, with her Belding, Michigan address. However, it was addressed to someone by the name of Roy McQueen.
The postcard read, “Dear Cousins, Hope this will find you all well. We are quite well but the mother has awful lame knees. It is awful cold here. I just finished my history lesson and am going to bed pretty soon. My father is shaving and my mother is telling me your address. I will have to close for a night. Hope grandma and grandpa are well. Don’t forget to write to us – Roy get his pants fixed yet. Flossie Burgess.”
The postcard also had a one-cent George Washington stamp affixed on the back. Moreover, it was Halloween themed, with a black cat holding a broom, a goose, an owl, a bat, and a woman with a cane and a witch’s hat.
Keech said she had no idea about the writer of the postcard but has shared it on social media in hopes of finding the sender’s relatives.
“Ok so I received this in the mail today. It appears to be a really old letter. I would like to get it to the or to a family member. Does anyone know this person? Their first name is missing. Just saw that it is dated for October 29th 1920. Any help would be great,(sic)” she wrote on Facebook.
