Ruth R., possibly Maine or Maritimes, friend of Marion (Rawding) Dinsmore
Postcard to Marion Rawding (who later married Willard Alton Dinsmore) from Ruth R., sadly no postal markings for clues. Marion married her Alton in 1922, so this postcard precedes that date.
Marion, who lived in Calais, Maine, corresponded with many people from Maine, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Her father, Fletcher Rawding, moved to Calais from the Clementsport area of Nova Scotia.
Ruth must have been a close friend, since she used Marion's nickname of "Biddy" in the salutation.
If you can identify Ruth R., please let me know, so that I can add her to the people in the Downeast Maine & Maritime Canada Genealogy index.
Thanks - and enjoy!
