Throw Away The Key


Small card, found in an envelope marked "Hannah Harrington, Laurens NY."

My heart to you is given,
Oh! do give yours to me;
We'll lock them up together,
And throw away the key.

The back of the envelope is postmarked "Cooperstown Feb  14" - can't make out much else:



Found in "Out of the Depths" by George A. Parker. Published by Reid Publishing Co., 1908.

Lovely! This just came up recently through one of the historic feeds I watch, and it's about all of these flirtation cards: http://dangerousminds.net/comments/19th-century_novelty_pickup_line_cards
