Transcription of message written in ink in reverse:
Hello "pal of mine", How are you jolly as ever I guess. Certainly did hate to leave you all Saturday evening. Almost dropped a tear. We made direct connection, got home at 7:45. Mattie, Lola and Mr. Carter were at station looking for us. My chum, Maud Watson, is going to Pilot Mt. this afternoon for month of Aug. Probably all winter. Am right sick about it. When you come to see me, we will walk down the avenue on the other side, it is true to life. Please let me hear from you soon - Good-bye with love from Bess / Kindest regards to your mother - address - 316 - Fifth Street / 8-1-10
