Seasons Greetings from George Arliss

This card dates from World War II and was sent to Drusilla Pierce, one of the Arlisses’ California friends. Written in Mr. A’s distinctive handwriting, a comment on the left side states, “(Dictated) Flo has trouble with her eyes and can no longer read or write. I am her secretary, Geo”

The main note states, “Drusie, We have just got your Xmas card. We are not sending out any cards this year, but this is just to acknowledge yours. We get very homesick for America and our old friends. It makes us happy to know that you remember us. With love from both of us.”

Up above Mr. A signs both for himself and Florence. Though undated, I would guess that this card was sent in late 1942 and 1943.
