Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”An uncommon 3 1/2 by 6 inch postcard of the statue, inscribed and signed, “With my thanks for your cordial congratulations, Bartholdi”. We obtained this recently in France.The inscription invites conjecture that this was signed in the wake of the dedication of the statue on October 28, 1886. (Inventory #: 19472)
