Post card franked with 25c Edifil 685 and Barcelona local Edifil 17. Unreadable postmark, but text on the back dated on May 25, 1938. Sender’s info on the front: “Remite: Julio González del Río, Palacio Misiones (Exposición), Barcelona”. Mark “Máximo 30 Palabras / en la contestación”. Written in a more telegraphic style, so apparently word limit restrictions were imposed.

Transcription:

Barcelona, 26-5-38

Queridos todos: Estoy estupendamente. Sin noticias.

Sabéis algo de Fernando? Le escribí sin contestación cuatro postales.

Recuerdos Marieta. Su familia muy atenta, igual Adelaida.

Recibí ropa.

Muchos abrazos,

Julio

Dear all: I am very well. No news.

Do you know anything about Fernando? I wrote him four postcards but I got no reply.

Regards Marieta. Her family very attentive, Adelaida the same.

I received clothes.

Lots of hugs,

Julio
