Notation
Schreiner has written ‘Personal’ at the top of this postcard's address-side, which also contains the name of the addressee and the address the card was sent to. Given the dating, the book by Stead referred to is likely to be his (1894) If Christ Came to Chicago London: Review of Review Offices.
