[Image: This card, is part of a twelve-card series, featuring children, illustrated by Indiana artist Cobb Shinn. The illustration features a young girl wearing a sailor suit and smiling as she bangs a gavel on a "Votes for Wimmen" soap box.

On the verso, the card is addressed to Mrs. T.N. Weeks Jacksboro, Texas, and postmarked March 17, [1913?]. The message reads:
"Dear Mrs. Weeks: Please hurry and come back home. It is so lonesome without you. Mr. D. wrote me you [obstructed word] had an awfully good time in Dallas. I know you are enjoying your visit home. But don't stay too long, for this 'old maid' is lonesome without her pal. Best wishes to you both."

Written on the front, under the inscription is: "Isn't it so?"]
