A third card from the Exel LeDuc file (cf. posts of 3 January 2013 and 18 April 2013), this one sent to her from Quebec City: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quebec_City. Perhaps the upside down stamp signified something.
"This place eclipses everything I've seen before -- a dream of archaic city walls, castellated cliffs, silver spires, pointed roofs, narrow, zigzag & precipitous streets, & the leisurely civilisation of an elder world." H.P. Lovecraft, postcard written in Quebec, to Donald Wandrei, 1930
The following is a transcript of the postcard to Exel, although I had difficulty deciphering a couple words.
Our festivities were a grand success. The Corpus Christi procession through the city especially -- 50,000 people -- is a triumph one sees but once in a lifetime. Wish you had been here for those 3 days to get an idea of the faith and patriotism of our good french canadians You'd have felt proud of your origin. Well (?)
