Dear Susanna,
I am at the airport on this postcard. There are lots of pretty trees here. Be a good girl. I love you.

Leonard's comments:

This is a somewhat infamous postcard. For a time, Susanna carried it around with her wherever she went. You see all that wear? I remember she put it in her pillowcase. She was two years old and this was probably one of her first pieces of private property.
