Halloween Countdown

What fun we have on Halloween!

In 1910, OTR's great uncle, Charles, received this postcard from his friend, Katherine, in Camden, New Jersey. She wrote:

Dear Friend Charles: I sincerely hope you are enjoying life to the fullest extent. I suppose you will be out for mischief tomorrow night. Halloween is always the biggest night of the year for me. Katherine

Charles turned 34 that year. He was a successful small-town banker who like many of his generation never married. We have scores of postcards from Katherine in our  archives, but she never signed her last name, and to this day she remains a mystery woman to the family. If there was some mischief going on, it belongs to the ages.
