Ethel wrote: "Dear Cousin, I am writing you a card. Why don't you all come fair time. I have two days out. From Ethel" to Sila Medder of Williamston. This beautiful flowered-card with poetry was sent for 1-cent in 1909. By this time, the Fowlerville Fair was celebrating 23 years, having been organized in 1886, with the first event the following year in 1887.
