Description: Postcard of the interior 'Altar' area for an unidentified Mexican Church. It is not clear whether this is a 'Mexican Church' somewhere in El Paso, Texas or a 'Mexican Church' somewhere in Mexico. The Altar area and surrounding architecture is decorative and ornate and is a typical representation of 'Jesus at the Altar'. Various Saints surround 'Jesus' and behind 'Jesus' is the Church Tabernacle and above and behind the Tabernacle there appears to be an affixed Catholic Monstrance.

Walter Horne writes [reverse side postcard]: "My dear Mother & Ed. Have been on the hump every minute. Will write at once. Am all OK every way. Glad you are both well. Love," Water.

[Adobe Cook-House at Glenn Springs, Texas]

Description: Postcard of an "Adobe Cook-House at Glenn Springs, Texas in which 9 U.S. Soldiers made their Defense against Mexican Bandits". These are some, if not all, all of the same soldiers that are also pictured in postcard WH PC 189-001 https://edit.texashistory.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metapth187877/ The adobe structure in this image appears to have suffered some fire damage. We cannot positively identify the adobe structure in this postcard as being the same adobe structure in postcard WH PC 189-001 however most of the soldiers are the same if not all the same. This postcard appears to be an "after" picture and the aforementioned postcard appears to be the "before" picture. Presumably the "before" and "after" postcard after the battle with the alleged Mexican bandits - not shown in either postcard. The soldiers are armed with service rifles and some of the soldiers are also carrying service revolvers in their holsters. The location is Glenn Springs, Texas in the Big Bend National Park.
