Postcard to Ed Bakis at Sterling College in Kansas, postmarked 1958


I bought this postcard at a flea market. I live about 30 minutes from the town of Sterling, Kansas, and this was addressed to Ed Bakis at the college there and postmarked in 1958.

I didn't recognize the language and put a bit of it into an online translator. Apparently it is Estonian. I bought another card at the same time also addressed to Ed Bakis, and also written in the same language.

The story remains a mystery to me, but I'm glad to have this little bit of handwriting preserved here.
