I Hope We’ll Meet Again in Limestone, Tenn.

This is a generic card with the town overprinted.  The postmark is from Limestone on January 28,1915.  Limestone’s had a post office since 1858, seventy-eight years after Washington College Academy was founded there.  Before the Civil War, Limestone was called “Anthem”.

On the back, the credit line on the left reads: Holmfirth Bamforth & Co. Ltd, Publishers (England) and New York. Bamforth’s Locals

The Message reads: “Hello! Guess Who?”  (I thought this was printed on the card, but the ink is smeared on the exclamation point)  The card is addressed to Miss Sarah Stonecipher, Limestone Tenn.  The same lady received the card in the previous posting.  Not particularly surprising, I found both of these in Limestone.
