Printed caption on recto reads: "Gaboon Puff Adder."
Printed caption on verso reads: "Gaboon Puff Adder. The Gaboon Puff Adder takes its name from the river Gabun, a tributary of the Congo. Ex-president Roosevelt and party expect to spend considerable time in the regions where these snakes abound. The Puff Adder hisses with a puffing sound. It has an unusually broad triangular head, due to the excessive size of its poison sacs. Its bite is very deadly, being perhaps the most quickly fatal of any serpent known, and it is very ugly in appearance. It attains a length of four or five feet, and is often as thick as a man's arm. In color it is yellowish brown checkered with reddish brown and white."
Additional printed text on verso reads: "'Roosevelt Tour' Published by Arthur Capper, Topeka, Kansas; Copyrighted, 1909, By Arthur Capper, Topeka, Kansas."
Manuscript message, address, and postmarked postage stamp on verso.

Could you send me a new copy of Seculo which contained the article. Thanks in advance - Maybe you didn't receive my last postcard ? It is true it was during troubled times. Yours faithfully E.
