[88 x 140 mm].
[Postmarked] Brighton & Hove, Sussex: 6 April 1931.

The postcard is addressed to Miss Baker, 31 Paragon, Bath, and is stamped with a George V One Penny red. On the reverse is an unrecorded poem written by Belloc in black ink. It begins:

"We know not what to say
Re your's received today.
We're basking in the realms of sheer delight;
And when its read to Jane
She also won't refrain
From loving it with all her main and might"

After a further verse it concludes:

"In conclusion we simply insist
That in future you will not desist
From sending your poems to cheer the s---st path;
Some space they perforce must reserve,
For such great contributions will serve
To raise international hopes re the City of B[ath]".
