415 N. E. 14th Street Abeline, Kansas
You will find enclosed check for my renewal. I can hardly wait for the next issue, keep up the good work. I am sending you two pictures of a 75 hp. Case my father bought in 1913. We run it every year until 1941. Father passed away in 1931 at 77 years of age. He had the first traction engine in Dickinson County, Kansas. He came to Kansas in 1869 while 'Wild Bill' was Marshal of Abeline.
This old engine was a part of me from a boy to man. You can tell that man who had the letter in your last ALBUM that likes combines (S. H. Harem), that farmers got rich using steam and went broke using combines. I do some threshing each year yet. I have a small separator I.H.C. 28' and 15-30 tractor. We threshed oats one day this year, 1750 bushel from 9 A. M., to 12 noon, and 1 P. M., to 7 P. M. good day for a 28'. I go to Wichita, Kansas, every year and have the time of my life. Keep up the good work.
The pictures are of my son and myself.
