Postmark February 10, 1931 Daytona Beach Florida.
To Arthur F. Clark
Laguna Beach California
Melbourne like most every other boom town in Florida, has
had a big hotel wished on it; Most of the towns a tough time trying to live up
to their hotels and Melbourne is just another town along the coast. We concluded that finances do not warrant more
than a fleeting glance at this emporium and I felt it our duty to prance right
along to where we were going which to the best of knowledge at this particular
time was New Smyrna. So we beat it.
