‘Tis then, O Lord, that I should pause
to pray.
When every foolish, time worn, petty
grievance, Seems like a mountain to my weary
Dear Lord, I have no magic for their
But Thou with healing strength canst

On page 32 of Jan.-Feb. Issue regarding the picture of that
engine – I believe it’s a 20-45 Fairbanks-Morris. I threshed on
one 20 years ago. It was a one cylinder, and started on pulling
back on compression and flipping point breaker. I own a one
cylinder 25 hp International which looks a lot like it. Also 2
Rumely oil pulls. 30-60 large wheels and 30-60 small wheels.

Quick, J. Thomas, Auburn, New York, made it. Best Regards,

On the last page of your Jan.-Feb. ALBUM you show an old make of
tractor. From my old tractor Index this tractor looks like a
Capital 15-30 built by C. H. Dissinger and Brother Co.,
Wrightsville, Pennsylvania.

I suppose by now you have received a number of identities of the
tractor illustrated on Page 32, Jan-Feb. issue of ALBUM. It is a
1911 – 15-25 hp. Fairbanks-Morse, with a one-cylinder horizontal,
open crankcase engine. Foot brake a band on drum of differential,
also a brake shoe on belt pulley. Water is pumped on a screen on
the house shaped radiator for the cooling system. (Am I right?)
