December 31 1939

This Mystery Postcard, written in bastardized French and addressed to 

Mme, et Mlle. Ewing et Ben chien

(the Ewing dog was called Benny) in Angleterre, sends New Year’s good luck wishes via four kittens and can only have come from Bobby Sheedy.  It is postmarked Marseille-Gare on the last day of 1939.


The message reads (I think):  

Je suis ici a Marseille.  Tout très bon.  Tout les dames et les hommes- et les enfants, très, très, joli.   Au Revoir.  Vive la France.  [Indecipherable signature with a question mark.]
