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.
