Description: Postcard of a man kneeling and praying, while alligators approach from behind, with the text of "Darky's Prayer, Florida" included. A handwritten note addressed to Mrs. Clara Aten & Family from Nevin E. Hermsinger says "Hello all: I received your card sometime ago, sorry I didn't get out while I was home, there were a lot of places I wanted to go but didn't get there. Well, maybe we'll have Hitler where the negro on the other side is pretty soon (we hope). I had a swell time while I was home, only wish I could of stayed longer, but uncle Sam said no. Hope you are all well, as I am O.K. It's awful warm here, you should have some of this weather up there to make hay. Write when you can. Nevin."
