South Broad­way at the time was lined with large, fine homes and a land­scaped is­land in the cen­ter of the broad street. The card was sent to a man’s wife in Hot Springs, “My Beloved & Only Wife, Am I for­got­ten so soon or has some­one else re­placed me? I trust you al­ways be care­ful and don’t do any­thing that your hus­band don’t like. Oh, may you know I be­long all to you. I am sad, sad, sad. I won’t last long. Kisses and sweet em­braces from your hus­band John.”
