Hotel Regina. Feb: 23rd.
So glad to get both your Post Cards & to know you are well. There is to be a dance in this Hotel next Thursday. The Carnival is going on today & there are little red & green Chinese laterns hung in the trees in the town. “Missie”
I have marked my window with a [blot] !! We are having bright sunny weather.
S: at first, looking at the date and the mention of lanterns, i was really excited that this could’ve been written for Lunar New Year and immediately googled when that was in 1909; but alas, that year it was in January. then i realised that in 1909, the “Chinese lanterns” mentioned were likely to have come from violent French occupation in Asia – which dampened the rest of my blissful naivety pretty abruptly.
