Thank you, each and every one, for the fine cooperation and encouragement you've given me during these summer months.

So many of you wonderful folks have written such understanding messages to me, I cannot begin to mention names. I may leave out one and I certainly wouldn't wish this to happen.

We 'goofed' on the dates for the Blue Grass Steam & Gas Engine Assn. They sent us the dates and then a few days later sent us a letter to change them. Because our Secretary left us just at this time and it had already gone to the printers, it was not corrected, thus they appeared differently in ad and Comings. Sorry for this and hope we didn't inconvenience anyone too much. Next year we surely will try to do better.

Mr. and Mrs. Dave Egan and daughter, Noel, from Mechanicsburg, drove me down to Eastern Shore Show in Maryland for just Sunday. I had not been there for several years. They surely have grown bigger and better with time. It was well worth our trip.

Mrs. Jimmy Layton made me feel especially good. I had cancelled out going with Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Schaefer for entire show since they weren't coming home until Monday. This was when our new Secretary, Mrs. Graffius, was to start in here at the office. I felt I wanted to be here for Monday. In the meanwhile, the Egan Family offered to go with me and we'd come back Sunday night. Mrs. Layton heard I wasn't coming with Schaefers so she called to see if I was ill. These are the kind of folks you meet from down there so gracious and thoughtful. It isn't any wonder their show is progressing. They treat everyone the same way. Thanks!

I was able to attend Kinzers in Lancaster County all three days and what big three days! I never saw so many people for the entire period. I'm sure it was the biggest and most successful show ever for them. Mrs. Elmer Schaefer was there to take care of business with me which was a big help.
