Yamaska Heartbreak

Desperate postcard from 111 years ago:

"Antoinette got your letter last evening, she tells me that you will not answer me now. Don't make me wait too long. I was really disappointed to not get a card from you last evening. I was so certain that I'd get one. I hurried home but I was disappointed." It looks like there are tear stains on it!

Postcard was mailed by a Thomas from Montreal, postmarked 5 PM, February 19, 1906 to an Antoinette in Yamaska, a small town 100 km east of Montreal. Yamaska has only about 5,000 people today, so I blanked out her family name!
The picture is of  Couchiching Beach Park, in Orillia, Ontario, which I have visited.
