STEAM ON OUR CHESTS

Just got the ALBUM today and it is fine. Sure hope you people will come to our town and stop with us for the night. We could sure have a nice visit with all this steam on our chests. Art Frase was here recently. He lives about 75 miles northwest and has 3 very nice engines. We also met Mr. and Mrs. Blaker at our doings at Luxemburg where we had a fine time. Got. a kick out of the old Case at 45 or 50 miles per hour. We sure have crowds at these reunions and have the best kind of entertainment.

I am wondering how many readers there are now to the ALBUM. Must have quite a few. I sure like the pictures you carry in it. I am still shoveling coal for a living and I like it as an old steam man should stay with steam.

My mother is 83 and still in good health and we have 12 grandchildren so we are pretty busy as you well know. Come see us when you can.

ZUMBRO VALLEY THRESHERMEN'S ASSN., Inc.

Here is a brief note concerning the Second Annual Reunion of the Zumbro valley Threshermen's Association, West Concord, Minnesota. We never knew a woman who could condense like Mrs. Trelstad has. (The Editor)

My comments on the show are simple. The show was a huge success in every way. All the engines pulled good on the brake and the sawmill was very interesting. The wing feeders on the big separators were interesting to all because there are very lew left in this part of the state. And everyone I talked with wants another show next year. And that is very important.
