New Year Thoughts

| March/April 1985

Rocky Comfort, MO 64861

Russell outfit about 1917. Tandem compound engine, in Anderson County, Kansas. My brother George on engine, and Orville Seeber on separator.

20 HP Advance engine, Illinois separator at Kingfisher, Oklahoma in 1919. The outfit belonged to Legrand Still. I helped move this rig overland from Boise City, Oklahoma to Perryton, Texas in 1920.

I wanted to start the New Year right by turning my thoughts to the past.

While I am not able to own any of the old engines and threshers, you cannot take the memories from me.

I often wonder why this old thresher mania has such a grip on those of us who lived through it.
