Merry Christmas

Here's a Christmas card from author Booth Tarkington.

The writing on the reverse side is tough to decipher, I enlisted the help of Twitter and here's what we came up with:

Dear Flora,

This sends you & yours our very happy wish for the New Year and always -

Affectionately yours - Susanah
(in pencil)

To Flora Reynolds Xmas 1939

Tarkington's second wife was Susanah Keifer Robinson, according to Wikipedia.

"Flora" could be "Floss," a nickname for Florence.

Found in "Rumbin Galleries" by Booth Tarkington. Published by Literary Guild, 1937.
