The Burlington Battery

Burlington Vermont Postcard“The Battery” in Burlington, Vermont. Although the postmark is illegible, this is a Private Mailing Card, which means it’s crazy old. As best as I can interpret, this is how the message reads:

“The road you see in the above runs along the bank of the lake about 100 ft. above it. You can get a great view of the lake and the mountains on the other side. It is over a mile and a quarter[?] from Converse Hall. It is just 7:15 A.M. the latest I’ve been up since I’ve been here. Slept like a top. Received M’s postal yesterday.”

FYI: Converse Hall was, and is, a dormitory at the University of Vermont. The castle-like structure was built in 1895.
