Baptist Church Searcy AR. First Baptist? 1910 old postcard from James Whitlow.

Remember when we used to communicate by mail?  Postcards?  Letters?

It seems that it was appropriate to start out the mail with something that looked like this:

Dear Bob,How are you today?  As for me, I am fine.  The weather is clear here today....

Note this card with the note on the mail side.  This man had a sense of humor, I guess. It reads:

4-19-10

Well Bald headed sam how are you it has turned off cold up here the Argenta Carnival Co is up here now  I am going out to the old place this morn.  Walter

Will send ? a card later

It's a great bit of history and the front of the card has a picture of a Baptist Church in Searcy Arkansas.  I assume this is the First Baptist Church in Searcy.  If not, Sleuths, set me straight.  It was shared by James Whitlow, our postcard collector friend.

Barbara, That is a great find that you shared!  I love the wording on the post card, and the photo is great as well!

Don, thanks for that follow-up picture and for letting us know that you were doing a little harmless playing and that the REAL memory was of MONEY!  We can all understand that.  Philip Williams, a long-term member of First Baptist, says the stained glass windows are still in use in the new church.  I personally think this old church is much prettier than the big new one.

Michael, thanks for finding my blog.

Tony, the wording was clever, wasn't it.  Thanks for commenting.

Steve, I'd never thought of the time stame!  They really don't use it anymore, do they.  Thanks for stopping by.
