Case engine and thresher in Evan T. Jones and Sons interesting letter.

Enclosed find $2.00 to cover subscription as we don't want to miss an issue. We think the ALBUM is a wonderful little magazine and want you to keep the good work up.

I am enclosing a couple of photos. One of the old 20hp. Case engine pulling a 24x42 Case separator that I bought new in 1915 and it has never missed a season since, and is still in good running order.

We had an old time Threshing Bee on November 7th, 1954 and had quite a crowd despite the rain and drizzle when the picture was taken.

The other photo is of the 20-40 Oil Pull on the truck when we brought it home last summer.

The boys and I have a 20-40 and a 12-20 Rumley Oil Pull, the 20-45 Case steam engine and a double Buffalo Pitts steamer in our hobby collection so far. We have a Case steamer and a G5hp. Russell on the string and we hope to get them soon. We are also hoping to put on another Old Time Threshing Bee next summer.
