(5 1/2 x 3 1/2 In) This is an original antique G. K. Prince postcard from the 1910s. "The Quiet Room", by John Greenleaf Whittier. 

"THE QUIET ROOM
And so I find it well to come
For deeper rest to this still room;
For here the habit of the soul
Feels less the outer world's control.
And from the silence multiplied
By these still forms on every side,
The world, that time and sense has known,
Falls off, and leaves us God alone."

 

The postcard is used and is in GOOD condition, heavy wear at the edges, blunted corner tips, a few minor stains, crease at the center.
