This was one of three postcards Houdini sent Bess on this particular train journey through Germany. You'll note the time is 2:35 AM. As it turns out, Houdini could not find an open hotel and had to sleep "on the soft side of a bench" that night.
The mention of "our son" is interesting. This postcard pre-dates their dog Charlie (if we believe the story of them getting the dog in Russia), so I'm not sure what Houdini is talking about here. I also can't quite make out is his pet name signature.
Stay tuned for more.
