Inscription:

Dear Grandma,
We are having a good time here in Arizona. I am almost done with The Lord of the Rings because of all the driving we do. I hope you feel better. Love,

BENSON
"Facts, Folklore, History and Legend"

Early settlers passed through the Dragoon Mountains on their way to Benson, Arizona. This are was inhabited for centuries by the Spaniards. Like many other settlements, Benson had to deal with hostile Apaches.

Benson, founded in 1880 as a railroad stop, was frequented by cowboys, miners, rustlers, hustlers, and crap games. "Jack the Ripper" was killed here in Fisher's Saloon during an era called the "Blood and Thunder Days".

Leonard's comments:

Probably from 1990 or 1991 judging from my handwriting. Stamped but not mailed because I wrote all over where the address would go.
