OBERLIN, Kan. -- A postcard featuring a color drawing of Santa Claus and a young girl was mailed in 1914, but its journey was slower than Christmas. It just arrived in northwest Kansas.

The Christmas card was dated Dec. 23, 1914, and mailed to Ethel Martin of Oberlin, apparently from her cousins in Alma, Neb.

I wonder what the price of the stamp was.

Yes things are a little slow in Kansas....:P Postage in 1914 was 1 cent.
