Seems to me that all threshing reunions should get notice to you of their reunions so any and all of us Steam Bugs will have a chance to attend. For an illustration here in Mexico, Mo., they had a gathering for the first time, after the one at Mt. Pleasant, Iowa. One of my thresher and well driller friends said he heard the announcement over the radio and made the trip. On his return he said it was very good. Nine engines were present all operating on their own power, a couple of Model engines doing their stuff. Also seems as all associations should, state the number they have sponsored. That would show the length of time they have been in the harness, to each and everyone where ever they might live. I find out in these 76 years of my life, much delinquency in giving of reports and descriptions of the affairs. Occasionally some do give it as should be.
I subscribed for the Model Engineer, published in London, England, a weekly which has, been published for more than 56 years. It is on time and mailed regular mail by, ship. I have received my 22nd issue, and they state in all previous issues, what will appear in the next, treats on many subjects, especially steam engines of all the various types, and it is certainly very thorough on all subjects. The large and small Steam Traction Engines alone to me is worth the $6.00 a year subscription.
I have been a subscriber to The Miniature Locomotive, Box 305, Reseda, Cal., for two years at $3.00 a year, six issues a year. I have had to write to them to send my last two issues, and I just mailed a notice that I had not received my Nov.-Dec. 1954 issue.
I am glad to know you people are certainly on the job with the IRON-MEN ALBUM magazine, and everything that is ordered of you.
