Dear Sir;

We attended the reunions in Illinois and Iowa this year and had a wonder, full time. Believe it or not my wife fell in love with the Model engines. Now she is after me to build a Model, preferably an Advance-Rumely.

She is also a steam fan. I gave her my 40 Case last spring. She is probably the only lady in this part of the country who owns an engine and can run it.

I wish you would publish the ALBUM more often.
