It has been awhile since I’ve felt like sticking my nose in other people’s business (by reading vintage postcard messages). Here’s an intriguing message from 1907 I found:
“…Have notified candidate to be at your home Monday, Dec. 30th, at 2 p.m. I will be present also. Should we not have two witnesses? …”
My first thought was, candidate for what? There are sooo many answers to that question. It most likely isn’t personal in nature as a nanny or member of the housekeeping staff would be. The sender, C. Turner, and the recipient, Mrs. R. Legge, lived in two separate homes. It is most likely some sort of public position; especially since C. Turner said he or she would be in attendance. I wonder why witnesses would be needed? And why 2?
