MR. J. P. SMITH, HIS DOG AND 12 HP. FRICK. SEE MR. SMITH'S LETTER. BOTH COURTESY OF TERRY MITCHELL, ADVERTISING MANAGER FOR FRICK CO
The Frick Company, % Gordon Weagly
Last may I wrote you asking information regarding the age, etc., of a 12hp. engine No. 20458 and what the paint job should be as it came from the factory. You promptly answered and gave me the information, which I sure appreciated, and I thought it no more than fair to send you a picture of the engine after about 4? months of cleaning, repairing, etc., was complete. I am sure proud of it and have a lot of enjoyment from it. It is now in A-1 shape, new flues and all. Now I need some decals of your name 'Frick' to go on each side of the engine. They don't dare to be over three inches high that is the space on the engine block. If you have any please let me know what the bill is and I'll forward you the money (I need two of them).
Thanking you again for your great help and I hope some day I can take a trip and see your plant.
Yours very truly,
J. P. SMITH
