The impression of the postmark can be seen on the card above. The card was posted in Edinburgh at 1.30pm on 27 July 1908.  The sender appeared to have confidence in the postal service.  The card was sent to Buckie, about 120 miles to the north, with the message read:

 "Doing well.  Don't know whether I will come home tonight or not."
