Postcard of Robert Carl Alexander and Wife

Description:

Postcard of a couple photographed together, identified as Robert Carl Alexander (the Probate Judge for Wilson County 1919-1926) and his wife, Mary Emmeline. They are both visible from the chest up, wearing light-colored shirts; Robert is also wearing a checkered bow tie.

A letter, addressed to "Mrs. Hattie", was written on the back of the postcard and has been obscured by other handwritten notes in various inks that were added later. The original text appears to read: "Dear Sister, Many thanks for the nice present you sent me. I will remember [...] when I come [...] time."
