Comments

Photo of Jessie Henry in an Indian dress and cap. The dress is not being worn as usual in this shot: another shot, one of Alice Spott (Taylor), probably taken about 1905, also shows such a "show dress" worn the same way as in this shot. Postmark on back of postal: REQUA,/FEB/23/A.M./1909/CAL. Message on front, now partly rubbed out: Put this picture in you bed room it will be all the re mine away to you are any. Jessie Henry was alive in a rest home in 1968, but senile. She is rumored to be leaving a large estate.
