(5 1/2 x 3 1/2 In) This is an original antique Theo. M. Hammond postcard from 1901. "CRADLE ROLL.- Baby's Full Name: Clayton Lorentz Johnson. Date of Baby's Birthday August, 3rd 1911. Age: 3 Years. Parent's Names: Mr. and Mrs. Gustave Johnson. Address: Kipp, Saline Co., Kansas."
"Baby's Mother: In order to link the Sunday School and the Home more closely together, and knowing that mothers are always anxious to start the little ones right, we have established in our Sunday School a CRADLE ROLL, on which we wish to enroll the names of all the children in the vicinity who are too young to attend the regular services. May we not put your little one's name on our Roll? We will endeavor to keep both you and the baby in our mind, and to send the little one a birthday remembrance, and we shall hope in due time to see that name enrolled as a regular member of the Sunday School. Please fill out the blanks on the opposite side of this card, and send it to the address below, and we will send you at once a beautiful Certificate of Enrollment. There is no expense whatever connected with this. Yours in the Work, Mrs. Chas. Phillips, Kipp Sunday School."
