Jean Hayward in Germany, June 9, 1908

This card is from Jean's father Henry Hayward to his wife, who remained in Utah while Henry's sister Clara and daughter Bess accompanied him to Europe. His handwriting is difficult to decipher. He sent the postcard from New York. It starts, "Bess and all of us are quite well..." and discusses tickets and the boat. Bess was fifteen, and she turned sixteen three days after this postcard was sent. Clara Hayward was 36 and unmarried. She married Ellis B. Porter about twenty years later and they lived in California.
