Description

Message card for what looks to be for Christmas. Typed: "Instead of the touch of a friendly hand, the touch of your hand and mine, I send you a message meaning more Than gifts of bread and wine. For food is gone when the feast is o'er, The bread lasts but a day, But friendship such as mine for you Will never pass." Handwritten is "John & Mary Cody(?)"
