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.

Fauville concernant votre projet a été plutôt défavorable et nous ne comptons pas insister davantage. Je vous prie donc de ne pas envoyer vos autres cours; désirez-vous que je vous réexpédie ceux que j'ai? Je ne doute pas que vos vacances soient très réconfortantes à tous points de vue. Quand a lieu votre retraite? Nous avons la nôtre du 16 au 23. Restons unies dans la prière, mes chères Soeurs; je vous embrasse très affectueusement. Je ne sais pas ce que Soeur Marie fabienne va faire; Ce sera comme moi sans doute! Ce 3 Août 31. Soeur Marie-Henriette." Translated message reads, " Mr Fauville's reply concerning your project was rather unfavourable and we are not planning to insist any longer. I therefore ask you not to send your other courses; do you wish me to send back to you the ones I have? I do not doubt that your vacation has been very comforting for all standpoint of view. When is your retreat due? Ours will be held from 16 to 23. Let us remain united in prayer, my dear sisters, I kiss you affectionately. I do not know what Sister Marie-Fabienne is going to do; most likely the same as me. This August 3, 1931."
