Maud Jeffries was an American born actress who ended up living and working in Australia. 

Winnie, the writer of this card is clearly a fan.

The card was sent to Miss Ogilive in Martinborough, c/- Ross Bros.  I wonder if she worked there?

It’s a bit hard to make out, but at the bottom Winnie reports she has “nearly finished my hat”.

Only I loved you myself and do now but as I am married and not divorced as yet it would be wrong for me to try to hang on. Any way I am proud. I have been able to make a match with you both and if you ever make a match may it be [up top] like the postcard. I will always love you and remember you as it will be impossible to do otherwise.
