I saw a book for sale on Ebay that was given to a congressman by the name of JP Buchanan back in the 1920s. The book is titled, Back to God's Country. The book was given to Mr. Buchanan by his friend A. R. Erskine President of the Studebaker Corporation. There is a calling card on the inside of the book from Mr. Erskine. I thought it might be of interest to any Studebaker collectors. I've never seen a calling card for him before. Just thought someone might be interested.

Mr Erskine included this card in most of the copies of the book "History of the Studebaker Corporation," which he authored in 1924 (a revised and expanded version of the book with an identical title issued in 1918). I have found more than a few of these cards over the years. Apparently he gave out books with other titles to friends and acquaintances.
