Never Expect

Postcard from The New Greenbrier Hotel, White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. Postmarked Jul 1, 1941.

Written on back: 

Wish you could see this beautiful hotel, never saw such a place + never expected to stay at one unless as a chambermaid. 
We expect to be 200 miles further south tomorrow. Almost in North Carolina.
