"Hoping ... you will pass this way and make me a visit"

There's always room for another vintage Christmas card!

This simple one has a printed message on the front that states:
Your Christmas would be full of cheer
And you'd be happy all the year,
A sad day you would never know
If my wish could make it so.
On the back of this card, written in cursive in blue ink, is the following bittersweet message:
"I am still still hoping that on some of your trips you will pass this way and make me a visit. I am boarding the school teacher this year. Eugene named the baby, 'Doris Adaline'. We are all well and expect to get home for Christmas unless the weather is bad. It seems a long time since I was teaching at your school.
