Additional handwritten text on verso reads, "Ma chère Henriette, Merci pour tes deux jolies et aimables cartes que j'ai recues en meme temps que la lettre de tonton Louis. Je suis bien ennuyé de ce qu' Eduouard a fait. Je ne sais vraiment a quel age il commencera a devenir sérieux. Quel dommage que je ne sois en France; je me chargerais de le faire revenir a de meilleurs sentiments. Les fetes de Noel se sont passées assez tristement étant donné surtout de cette chaleur accablante. Tu trouves, chère soeur, que la barbe me rend sérieux. Tu ne te trompes pas car j'ai bien changé comme caractère ici, puis sais tu que je cours sur mes 22 ans, Quant ces cartes tu as du recevoir un panorama de Dakar et une autre fantaisie."
Translated handwritten text on verso reads, "Dear Henriette, thank you for these two pretty and kind postcards which I received with a leeter of uncle Louis. I feel sorry for Edourd's actions. I have no idea when he will show more maturity. I wish I could be in France to having him become more positive. Christmas was sad due to an excess of heat. You believe, dear sister, that I looked more serious wearing a beard. You are right, I have grown up but you should know that I am almost 22 year-old. You must have received a panorama of Dakar as well as another fantasy card."
