A postcard depicting Multnomah Falls
in the Columbia River Gorge, Multnomah County, Oregon, U.S. [frontside]
|Birthday Letter [backside]|
I don't remember where I found this postcard, but I think it was in a public library book on bats.
According to the postcard, Multnomah Falls is the second-highest waterfall in the United States (and it is located 30 miles east of Portland, Oregon on the Columbia River).
Here is the transcript of the postcard. Emma wishes Sophia "Happy Birthday". The postcard was originally attached to an 1880 cookbook.
This might seem like an odd present,
but when I was home I was really into
reading these old old cookbooks -
there was something inspiring to me
about the simpicity[sic] and matter of
factness - and how it was not just about
food but about saving and healing.
Anyway it made me want to find you one too
and I finally did it. It's from 1800 and
I hope you have fun exploring.
Wishing you all good things in the year
(and decade!) to come.
