Vincentennial Post #88 - More Happy Birthday Telegrams

Here is another telegram congratulating the family on young Vincent Leonard's arrival in this world. Vinnie's brother Mort (James Mortimer Price) was twelve years his senior.  This telegram comes from family members Mort was staying with during the birth of new baby brother Vinnie--and Mort sent his own tongue-in-cheek sentiments to his mom and dad in it.

And last we have a telegram from Vinnie's Aunt Em, who in 1913 sent him this telegram wishing him a happy 2nd birthday.  Her birthday wishes certain came true!
