The back of the postcard includes a message and holiday greetings from a young school girl.The message on the back of the postcard reads: 935 Chestnut St. Glendale Cal. Dear Mr. Riley. I am a little girl 9 years old and I love your poems because a little girl can understand them and there are so many of them written about places where I have been and where my Papa played when he was a little boy. I have spoken several of your poems. I wish wish you a very happy christmas, and glad new year your little freind Mildred Mcke
