| September/October 1953

Keosauqua, Iowa

I have an Emerson-Brantingham tractor which was shipped to Bonaparte, Ind., in 1918 or 1919, No. 34497D. Four cylinder cast in pairs. Water pump, magneto ignition, cone clutch, two speeds and slow at that.

I start the old thing once or twice a year. Would there be any reason for keeping it? I have a wood frame Advance-Rumely 32-52 thresher I am saving.

We also have two Birdsell Hullers. A No. 8, good as new. I hulled about 250 bushel last fall on four jobs. The No. 8 Huller we got from Pete Bucher, Fairfield, Iowa.
