Mr. Deidrich L. Dalke has this to say in a letter written to the Editor. We thought it unique and pass it along for your enjoyment
It is indeed a pleasure to go through the ALBUM, made possible by the cooperaton of so many like-minded people, fur one sees himself in so many of the pictures--showing experiences we met on our way.
Page 8, Nov.-Dec. 1951-- Something like this happened to me in Oklahoma. It was a return Hue Peerless. The bridge did not give way but the steerer attempting to make a left turn in the weeds ran off one end of the culvert.
Page 3, July-August, 1951-- I ran a Tuber like the one shown, three years in Oklahoma.
Front is Piece, Nov.-Dec., 1950-- Pulled a six bottom plow like the one Shown, in Oklahoma, with a 20hp Northwest. Good plowing but servicing the engine took too much time.
I could go on like this. No doubt this is a daily occurrence to you and it is enough to show you the ALBUM makes me home sick for a steam traction engine.
AN ITEM OF EXPENSE--
Mr. J. A. Loffelmacher said that he had over a thousand inquiries to his Advt., and only a few sent stamps. It will cost him $30 in stamps to answer those letters. That is one problem when you have a popular item. He is glad you wrote The Editor is saying this.
