This postcard was sent from Beaufort, N.C., in July of 1911 to Mrs. Julia Wooten of Greenville, N.C., from Pattie. Perhaps Pattie was staying at the Inlet Inn pictured on the postcard. The original Inlet Inn was built in the 1850's as a private home, became a boarding house in the early 1900's and was bought by Congressman Charles Abernathy in 1911. He added onto the building substantially and opened it as the Inlet Inn. In 1967, all but one wing was torn down so that a BB&T bank could be built; a new Inlet Inn was built in 1985.
