One of the readers of this blog read the entry yesterday and wondered how three tourists from Salt Lake City would spend a few days in New York City in 1908, so he figured out the text of Henry's postcard:
Bess and all of us are quite well. we went to one of the theatres last night and down to the ticket office[.] Bess and Clara went shopping while I got the steamer tickets fixed and tended to our Places on the Boat[.] the Boat has arrived in port from Paris all ok [?].
we went out to cony [sic] Island to day and have just returned[.] things are lively out there[.] we went early to avoid the crowd
the crowd goes in the after noon and takes them untill [sic] 4 in the morning to get back[.] they tell me I ought to go once in the evening[.] that is the time to see the fun. I will write to you to morrow evening and post it the morning we sail [illegible] not had any word from Jean
with love from H J [illegible]
