[Postcard from Mabel to Mrs. M. E. Wise, November 28, 1949]

Description: Postcard from Mabel to Mrs. M. E. Wise, thanking her for her letter, sending her apologies that Mrs. Wise's father is unwell, and promising to explain why she will be unable to visit Boulder, Colorado until February.

Both women are wearing trousers and t-shirts, and the woman on the right has her hair pulled back into small draped turban.

The name of the cave, "Tobacco Room," is printed at the top of the postcard.
