Can anyone read this postcard?
« on: Sunday 14 October 18 16:24 BST (UK) »
Hi All,

Can anyone read this postcard. It is pretty faded. I can make out bits and pieces but would love to see it all. It is a postcard from my great grandmother to my great grandfather prior to their marriage. She was on her way to Canada.

Many Thanks,

S :)

Thank you so much for all your efforts. It is so nice to have a clear copy and to know what it says.

;D

Might Gadget's question marked word on line three be "dearest"? It seems to veer off a bit though.  :)
