This is our station 100 meters from our home. Be aware that the Republican President [William Howard Taft] has been elected and hopefully will begin his work soon.

English translation of Italian text:

I was happy to hear from you.

Thanks again for the Christmas card. I saw the same portrait in the Literary Digest and read that it is very popular in Italy.

My mother is not well at the present time. She sends greetings to you.

What do you think of the war? [Presumably referring to the Italo-Turkish war.] I'll be glad to hear from you another time. Excuse my Italian. It is not very good. Please give my greetings to your father and mother. From America, Gertrude Cowan
