POEM FOR MR. BUCKMASTER

3775 Herman Avenue, San Diego, California

Just received my March-April Issue of the magazine. I surely get a great thrill out of it and don't want to miss a single copy. Read it from cover to cover and sorry when I get to the last page. I have not been in the threshing game since 1925 but am still with the boys in spirit. I spent 15 years behind the throttle from 1910 through 25.

On page 16 of the March-April '55 just saved it all these years and am sending it along for Mr. Buck master and anyone else who might be interested.

Would be glad to exchange letters and swap stories with some of the old timers as well as the youngsters in the most thrilling and exciting game of all times -- threshing the golden grain. I, myself, am or was an old coal hog, having ran steam all through my career as thresher.

Hoping Mr. Buck master enjoys the poem and that I will be hearing from him, I remain,
