Notes: Handwritten on verso: 'Now tell me truly, do you think that girl was me, When she [illegible] so high with a 'soldier [m]an' in an aeroplane?' Printed on image: 'Tis Hallowe'en and I'm here again / from the man in the Moon in an Aeroplane / My charms are new and right up to date / To tell by the Cards your fortune and fate.'
