Somehow I don't think Helen was getting what she needed from Eugenie - I like her opening sentence "you might write to me" - WOW - guilt by postcard in 1907! Then she goes on to gloat about having the time of her life (obviously a snub) but falls back into curiosity when asking about Shimble Islands. Actually it's "Thimble" Island which are a group of small islands in Long Island Sound, located in and around the harbor of Stony Creek in the southeast corner of Branford, Connecticut (according to Wikipedia) . So while Helen was in Ohio at Baldwin University - ol' Eugenie was whooping it up on the beach in Long Island Sound.
I couldn't find these buildings on the Baldwin site - but am sure they have been turned into some lovely cultural centers.
Happy Postcard Friday all
