Don’t you wish you had been here last August when these were ripe.  These were not the largest melons either but some that Ipol? Col took to town and gave to his friends.  Mattie
It was mailed in 1911 possibly in California.  It is addressed to Mr G R Wheeler Terrace, Minn
Thanks for stopping by.
From MJM

Martha M Wheeler (1873-1955) was married to Elmer Elsworth Wood (1865-1945) and had a daughter Dorothy E Wood (1908-?). On the 1930 census, Elmer was listed as Colonel E Wood, so perhaps the name written on the postcard is the abbreviation Col.

From Iggy:
George R had a daughter named Martha...I wonder if this is the Mattie that wrote the postcard. Jennie A and Martha M were children with his first wife. May and George A with his second wife
