| July/August 1954

Cosboy,  Missouri

Am enclosing check for $4.00 to cover renewal and one Wood Bros. Book. I enjoy the ALBUM very much as I started threshing when I was young. I had a complete Russell outfit, one of the late Russell Compound engines. I operated this engine both on the road and in the field when threshing and must say it was nice to operate. It had a high pressure boiler, was easy to fire and used less water than a simple engine. The Russell separator was also hard to beat. The many years I operated this Russell outfit, I never melted out a soft plug or had leaky flues, or any expensive repairs.
