  1. The inscription (in French) is “Souvenir et baisers de la cousinette” which means “Remembrance and Kisses from the Cousin”

    • Thanks for the translation. The young lady’s message makes me think of the term “kissing cousins”. In a way, sending this postcard with it’s photo and sweet words, is a predecessor to today’s text messaging.
