Unused Vintage Hallmark Christmas Prayer Greeting Card Peter Marshall
A beautiful, unused vintage Hallmark greeting card offering a Christmas Prayer by Peter Marshall. The soft green parchment paper shows a winter church scene, with a river in the foreground and the eye drawn to a horse-drawn carriage in front of and parishioners entering a country church. The cover cover is printed with the following Christmas Prayer by Chaplain Peter Marshall, chaplain of the United States Senate:
And we do pray, Lord Jesus, that as we celebrate Thy birthday, we may do it in a manner well pleasing to Thee. May all we do and say, every tribute of our hearts, bring honor to Thy name, that we, Thy people, may remember Thy birth and feel Thy presence among us even yet.
The simple message inside reads: "Wishing you the blessings of Christmas and the joys of the New Year."
According to Wikipedia, Peter Marshall was a Scots-American preacher, pastor of the New York Avenue Presbyterian Church in Washington, DC., who in 1946 was appointed as US Senate Chaplain, serving from January 4, 1947, until his sudden death of a heart attack in 1949.
Card measures 6-7/8" long, 5" wide, and comes with its original envelope, all in excellent condition. The card back is marked with "Peter Marshall was the much revered chaplain of the United States Senate," just above the Hallmark name and logo, and numbered 35X 246-6 / © Hallmark Cards Inc. / Made in U.S.A.
I'm speculating this card dates to the 1970s, but could be a bit older or maybe as "new" as the 1980s.
