"Inscription on Monument over "BUFFALO BILL'S" Grave: IN MEMORIAM COLONEL WILLIAM FREDERICK CODY "BUFFALO BILL" (Noted Scout and Indian Fighter) Born February 26, 1846, Scott County, Iowa. Died January 10, 1917, Denver, Colorado. Louisa M. Cody, his Wife, also buried here."

"I've Stood at the grave of Buffalo Bill
On a mountain crest and I've felt the thrill
Which he must have felt, as I saw below
The prairies wide of his long ago.
I've heard it told how he journeyed there
With the breezes tossing his steel-gray hair,
And his soul rejoiced at each changing scene
Which marks the haunts
where his youth had been
And I understand why he asked to lie
Through that last long sleep
'neath that open sky."

The postcard is unused and is in EXCELLENT condition, light wear and album marks at corners.
