This is a post card written by my great grandfather (William Clinton Garrett) to my grandmother (Mrs. S. W. "Annie" Stephenson). It was written March 15, 1950 and post marked from Floydada, Texas at 6 pm. Grandpa Garrett was staying with his son, "Uncle Jim" Garrett in Floydada. Grandpa Garrett would have been about 90 years old at the time he wrote this card.

The card is difficult for me to read. I've made an attempt to copy it below, but some parts are missing until I can figure out what it says. It's written in pencil and hard to read.
