De Kalb, Illinois
Enclosed you will find a couple of engravings. Both show our Banting Greyhound which we obtained two years ago in a pretty rusty condition. After hours of cleaning, painting and adjusting we have it in pretty fair condition ...boiler is excellent though the traction gears show signs of considerable wear.
During De Kalb, Illinois Centennial June 9-16 the engine was used in an agriculture demonstration and it was belted to a 32 inch separator, and the last day of the celebration it appeared in the three hour long parade.
