Description

This card is an advertisement for obtaining a copy of the photographic reproduction of the Keyes copy of Lincoln's speech at the dedication ceremony of the National Cemetery at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on November 19, 1863. A photograph in miniature of the facsimile of the speech appears on the front of the card. On the back of the card, the text reads, "Give This Card to a Friend. They also may obtain a Facsimile of the Famous Keyes' Copy of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address." In the next paragraph is a description of the facsimile and the directions for obtaining one by mailing a bottle cap from Dari-Rich Chocolate flavored Dairy Drink, and ten cents in coin.
