[Postcard of Indian River in Florida]

Description: Postcard of the Indian River in Florida, with a road running next to it. A handwritten note addressed to Clara Aten & Family from Col. Nevin E. Hermseige says "Hello Folks: I received your very nice card to-day, glad to hear from you, and hope you are all well. I am O.K. Mother said Carl had the mumps, I bet he looked sweet. Ha. I hope none of the rest got them. I haven't heard from Pappy K. lately either, the last I heard he was O.K. How does Woodie like the army by now? I guess everyone will be glad when it is over. It rained hard here all day, but is stopped just now, but it still looks like rain. Write when you can. As Ever. Nevin. Happy Easter."
