Postcard written in Estonian, addressed to Ed Bakis at Sterling College


Sterling College is a small, liberal arts college in central Kansas. This postcard was one of two I bought at the same time, both addressed to Ed Bakis, and postmarked in 1958.

I didn't recognize the language, but put some of it into an online translator, which told me it was Estonian.
