Thanks for your letter acknowledging the return of the extra book, and the kind words in regards to same. The ALBUM is a source of more real pleasure than any other similar and comparable source. It helps to recall more pleasant recollections and cherished memories than anything else in my life. You are doing a grand job, and I wish I could be there to help you by working along with you.

If I can find any old threshermen or engineer out here, I'll be glad to collect any information that may be available.

Hope you are planning more catalog reprints as I am interested in the ones listed below * * *. Would like to see results of drawbar, plowing and prony brake tests at the various reunions itemized and printed in ALBUM. Sincerely,
