Holyrood Palace and Arthur Seat

This card was posted on 3 June 1903.  It has an undivided back.  The message is written on the front and the address on the back.  I cannot tell you what the message above says.  It is written very neatly, but in Norwegian.

Came here yesterday at 7:30. Everything all right. Unusually calm weather. Not seasick. Good weather during the voyage, although fog on all of the North Sea. Good appetite and sufficient sleep and in perfect condition. I hope the same for you."
