Miss Lillian's Postcards - Vintage Tweets from 1908: A Farewell Party for Lillian?

Postcard 023

Sender: Sister of Lillian, Anne Mueller
Addressee: Miss Lillian Maguire, #1315 N. Taylor Ave., St. Louis Mo
Postmark: Seattle, WASH.
Date: April 14, 1908
Image: Tillamook Rock and Lighthouse, Oregon
My dear L,
Your postcard 
received glad to
hear from you. I
hope you will all 
have a good time
at the party. Be [sic]
& don't forget to write
when you leave. Love to
all,  yrs, A.

This postcard  features the infamous Tillamook Rock Light on the coast of Oregon. Read all about the challenges of building the lighthouse and lives lost here. Today the Tillamook name has a much happier association with dairy products. :)

In this short message to Lillian from her sister Anne (who lives in Seattle), we learn that Lillian is going to be attending a party. We love parties! We also learn that Lillian is about to embark on a journey! Could the party be a farewell party? Maybe. Perhaps the next post card will provide a clue!
