THE BEGINNING OF THE END


| November/December 1956


Salina, Kansas

Here is a little informative note that came to us from Marcus Leonard that may be news to you as it was to us. Ed

THE PICTURE OF THE Stevens Cross Compound Under-mounted engine, published in the July-August, 1956 issue of the ALBUM, reminds me most forcibly of what happened, which hastened the coming of the end of the Stevens Company.

The Stevens Company was exhibiting one of the Under mounted engines

at a state fair. J. B. Bartholomew, for Avery Company, obtained an injunction to restrain the Stevens Company from building the engine, because of the infringement of Avery Co's. patents. The papers were served and the Stevens Company was compelled to cover the engine with a canvas. That was the beginning of the end of the Stevens Company.
