I thought readers would enjoy seeing this picture and note on my great uncle's threshing outfit.

The photo was taken July 4th, 1890 of my great uncle Frank Skinner's threshing outfit. The engine is an 1887 C & G Cooperbevel-gear steam engine, made at Mt. Vernon, Ohio, serial #5843. The separator is a Russell slat stacker.

I hope readers can tell me what the last machine is. Also, below is a copy of the note to pay $50.00 on the engine after November 1, 1890.
