According to Charles Cole you have a boiler full of water, pop
ready to blow and a real hot fire so let’s get going.

I saw a notice in his catalog about your Magazine so I am
writing to see what it is all about.

I finished a Model traction engine some years ago which I still
have (Free lance) and have had a lot of fun with it. Cylinder
1×11/2 and weighs eighty pounds.

I own an engine and boiler out of an old Mobile steam car, and
two antique toy steam engines larger than most toys. I also have a
steam driven bicycle which I rebuilt and which is in running

I take pictures of engines wherever I can find them. The oldest
engine picture I have taken is a Blandy bought new in 1863. I took
the picture in 1951.

As you can see I am a bit interested in steam so you can send
along the dope on what is going on out your way.
