Tourist Picture Postcards from Haiti

I am interested in tourist comments written on picture postcards sent from Haiti during the "Golden Age" of Haiti tourism (circa 1950's-70's) with the ultimate goal of writing an article about this in "Haiti Philately." The focus is "social philately" about what tourist visitors saw and did, even if it was nothing more than a travel itinerary or a weather report. [For example, my personal experience is that many postcards from the Middle East generally included some form of "it sure is hot here"]. Messages and English and French are preferred but I can deal with other languages as necessary. Are other HPS members able to help me with this by providing either scans or paper copies? [This is my first posting on the HPS Discussion Forum so if I left something out, please let me know].
