(5 1/2 x 3 1/2 In) This is an original antique Import Post Card Co. "Riley's Neighborly Poems" series postcard copyrighted by The Scofield-Pierson Co. in 1907. It shows a portrait of James Whitcomb Riley signed by artist Cobb Shinn, "Riley Roses".

"Fer the world is full of roses,
and the roses full of dew,
And the dew is full of heavenly love
that drips for me and you."

"My own Julia- Don't think I've forgotten you but have been busy. Will write later. Write to me - some card rec'd and had a good laugh over there- especially Burt & J. Me, to Jack Eva Hazel and All - Mary", reads the note written on the back. 

The postcard is used and is in VERY GOOD condition, wear at the edges, blunted corner tips, a few small creases.
