I found this old Valentine post card among my collection of old post cards. The date stamp on the back of the card says Feb 12, 1909. The card was sent from Wilmington, Ohio, to a Russell Clevenger in Wilmington. The person who sent the card didn’t sign their full name but wrote the initials: HFM. If Wilmington was a small town, I’m sure that HFM didn’t want the entire town to know anything she might write to Russell. I have been reflecting on these two people who lived 101 years ago…what a different world it was then.
