The poem and music on this early 19th century postcard.
The companion postcard was called NAME.

Overcoats and wrappers
Furs and muffatees
Hands deep down in pockets,
Cosy as you please.
Little lads and lassies
Trotting through the snow
Tell us where you're going
We should like to know.

To a Christmas Party
We are on our way
O such cakes and crackers
O such games of play
Now goodbye we cannot
     any longer wait.
Or I do assure you,
We shall all be late.

Going To The Party - Artwork by Kate Greenaway.

Editor's Note: Still looking for the backside of this card, and for its companion "Dainty Airs."
