“Valentine Thoughts” to Mrs. Wolfgang – North Lima, Ohio (1923)

Mrs. Jacob Wolfgang lived in North Lima, Ohio.

North Lima is a small, unincorporated community in northeast Ohio.

It is believed that the community was named for Lima, New York.


In February of 1923, Mrs. Wolfgang received a Valentine postcard from Mrs. M. J. Mentzer.

Mrs. Mentzer also lived in North Lima, and may have been a neighbor.

The face of the postcard includes an illustration of butterflies hovering around a flowering tree – perhaps a lilac.

 Below the colorful drawing is a verse entitled, “Valentine Thoughts”.

The verse compares the flowers to the pleasant remembrances of the loved one.

On the reverse, there is no further message – Mrs. Mentzer inscribes only her name.

One hopes that Mrs. Wolfgang was pleased by the greeting of her friend and that the two remained correspondents for many years.
