Description / Abstract:
Recto: The governor's palace kitchen, Williamsburg, Virginia ...; Verso: British rule 1720 to 1775. Governor's palace kitchen, Williamsburg, Virginia.

Dear Friends. We revisited this most beautiful and interesting place - a complete city rebuilt on original foundations exactly as it was - hundreds of buildings a ... living museum. No cars allowed - Parking is outside, then free busses take you there and you get out and walk. A paradise for history lovers. We are in Norfolk for a walk, then back to Edinton, going home after July 5 or 6th. Feeling real fine - slept all night through. No humidity 90 degrees. Invited out for dinners so often. We are putting on weight looking forward to picnic with the Camerons again. Much love to you all from Eric of Little Betty. 4c U.S. postage. Lincoln. Mr. & Mrs. W. Cameron, 609 Minnesota St., Clearwater, Fla.
