Dear Sadie, Here’s our youngest doing a stunt. Wishn you all might see her.  She is beginning to walk and talk.
We are comfortably situated in a house by ourselves. Mr. ? enjoys the fine H.S. Building and his equipment.  We find people cordial + have made several friends whom we value .  How are you? Still in Casselton?  Lovingly, Stella Graham
The postcard was sent to Miss Sarah Best Fargo, N.D.
Thanks for stopping by.  Do come againSmile

Update from Iggy:
Eugene Clayton (23 Mar 1875 in Forest, Rice, Minnesota - Mar. 20, 1936 in Manhattan, Riley, Kansas) and Stella H Graham (15 Dec 1872 in Illinois - 2 Jul 1960 in California, appears in the 1940 US census as widowed, living in Pasadena, Los Angeles, California) had this baby, Helen Elizabeth Graham (30 Aug 1906 - 1 Jul 1989) in Minnesota but then moved to Kansas, Ohio, and then back to Kansas and then Stella and Helen moved to Los Angeles.

Helen married a Mr. Macy.


Update from grandmavickiann:
This could be Sarah Best
She was born in 1881 in Minnesota, the daughter of William and Abbie Best. At the time of the 1910 Census, her father had died, and she was living with her mother and siblings Ina, Imir and Mary, all girls, as well as her maternal grandmother, Sarah Thomas, for whom it appears that she was named. According to the NDSU biography, there was also a brother, Will.

The NDSU Library has several feet of items donated by Sarah Best and Ina Best. They must not have married. Her father was once mayor of Casselton and Chief of Police of Fargo. He died in 1898.
