Description

A bouquet of flowers, possibly dogwood blossoms, is encircled by a crown of thorns. A beam of light with the word Pauvreté (Poverty) and a golden cross within it shines on the flowers. A quote from Saint Basil the Great appears to the left. The back of the card has an inscription commemorating the profession of religious vows by a Sister of Saint Joseph of Lynn, Massachusetts. This card was printed by Lecène and Companie, an affiliated printer of Maison Bouasse-Lebel.
