Title Here's Hoping Your Trail by Charles M. Russell
Date December 20, 1970
Scope & Content Original colour postcard with horse and cowboy illustration by Western artist C. M. Russell. The verse by Russell which is printed on the illustration reads:

"Here's hoping your trail is a long one
Plain and easy to ride
May your dry camps be few
And Health ride with you
To the pass on the Big Divide.

C.M. Russell"

Merry Christmas and a happy new year! is printed on the front and also "Claude W. Dowen" who has sent this card to Ora and Bill Sinclair.

On the back is a short greeting written in ink by Claude. It appears that someone made this from an original water painting which they had of Charles Russell's.
