Someone found the original postcard that inspired the cover of In The Aeroplane Over the Sea by Neutral Milk Hotel… Apparently there’s currently a bunch of people racing to an antique shop in Lambertville, New Jersey where it turned up, to claim the ultimate hipster prize.
The original postcard was addressed to Samuel Hawkins, in Payette, Idaho.
"Hello Sam How is old boy Sam. I suppose you think I was never going to write again. I will write you a letter some day again soon by - H.W."
