A postcard from Frances from her Memphis trip

As we will find out later in greater detail, Frances decides to take the family up to Memphis for Easter.  This postcard is the only extant communication that she sent on the trip.  She picked a very appropriate postcard, featuring a photo of a hydraulic dam.  Maj. Gillham, a Georgia Tech grad, loved anything to do with engineering.

We've been to Memphis to see Grandmother.  She is fine and her set up couldn't be nicer.  Addie is fine to her and is expecting a present from Japan!

I'm writing a letter tonight with details.

All four of us have gotten our traveling legs on and miss you terribly.
