On the River in Surinam, A 'Dear Doctor' Postcard

VI - Paramaribo, Surinam
Natives on Surinam River

Arrived safely . . . . . . .
"Marazine' saved the day as the trip was rough.  Beautiful country!  In 1667 the Dutch traded what is now New York City to England for the sovereignty over Surinam.  Thanks to "Methedrine' I've traded obesity for normal weight.
'B.W. and CO.'

Unfortunately this ends our present trip.  If you enjoyed our cards we hope you will drop us a note.  'Methedrine' literature or samples are available on request. 

This is a "Dear Doctor" advertising postcard.  It was mailed in 1953 to a medical doctor in Elkhart, Indiana, USA with two matching stamps.
