Hi Patrick

Hey, we just passed 100 posts.

Card, 5 inches by 3.5 inches folded.
Written on inside:

Hi Patrick -
The 2nd part of your birthday present. First printing - just came out. I hope you enjoy it. I'm thinking of looking into the NJ edition.
Hope ??? and Keira are fine. And, of course, hugs for ???? Belle.
Love you,

Found in "Memoir of a Geisha" by Arthur Golden. Alfred A. Knopf, 1998. Not a first printing, not the book mentioned in the card, or so it would appear.


  1. Looks like "...Hope you and Keira are fine..."

    And the other one is "Ni? Belle"
