The postcard is addressed to Mr. Jeffery Bull, Hawthorne Lodge, Brampton, Ont. The transcription reads: "Suppose you got home O.K. old man, and found the estate in good order? I have just finished phoning your sister on West Ave. She is in great demand here, it seems. Mother had a little evening for Dr. Rose and family and very kindly invited Florence without me knowing it it was quite a surprise. You'll have to excuse this scribble. I have just been promoted to a better position at the foundry with an increase in pay. Tell Lillian its her turn now to come to H. directly after Flo leaves. Yours t. A.L.R. Have just had a Prince from [N.Z.] to dinner. I met him in Kingston at Queen's." The recto has "Summer Scene" written underneath the image. The verso has a 1 cent green Canadian stamp with wavy cancellation marks. The return stamp is dated January 11, , Hamilton. The number 1876 is printed on the recto. The postcard corners are slightly bent.
