1977, August 15: Note from Marcy to G&H
Handwritten on a no-picture postcard, the sort they’d used a few times before, with preprinted postage on it.
It’s a little confusing, because the postcard has a cancellation in Tacoma from 11 August 1977 on the side where the writing is, and a cancellation in San Rafael, CA from 15 August 1977 on the side where the address is. So I think that George and Helen may have mailed them a blank postcard, and Marcy wrote on it and mailed it back.
Then again, there’s also a small bit of tape on the postcard, so possibly it was originally taped to something that George and Helen mailed them? Not sure.
Neat idea. -still not clear if you’re coming this way, or where we’ll be. entertaining the idea of Peter going to LA to stay w/friends & job hunt full-time in Sept. (We won’t move w/out letting you know.) This is how we recieved the card—
There are arrows from that last sentence pointing to the Tacoma postmark.
As noted in my notes on a couple of previous letters, we didn’t end up moving until a year later.
