45 antique post card 1910 tiny envelope

Post marked 9/24/1910 Otwell, Indiana mailed to Mabel Hadlock, M.E. Hospital, Indianapolis, Indiana.  There is a blue slip of paper in the tiny envelope with a hand written note:

I hope you are getting well and will be home soon. your friend Glen Smith

I have a special appreciation for this card.  Back then if people were sick, it didn’t mean they could not hang out or that it was inconvenient; it was life threatening.  My grandmother had an older brother and sister die seven days apart in a flu outbreak in 1918.  Anything that landed you in a hospital in 1910 was serious.  I found a Mabel [Marion E.] Hadlock online for Otwell, Indiana born Sept 26, 1899 and this might be her having died in March of 1968 if she never married.
