Here is the text from Bob Merriam who forwarded
it to Fred.
Dear Mr. Merriam,
we are a group of model-engineers in Germany. Our interests are old steam
engines and the history of steam engines of the 19th. century.With this mail i
send you 5 pictures of a model, which was build by a friend of mine. The
original engine is standing in an old saw-mill and we are affraid, that the
engine will give to scrab, when the owners are died (now 84 and 82 years old).
We are always looking for interesting systems and designes of old steam
engines for our models. Therefore we found your homepage and also 2 engines,
we want to build as models. At this time, my friend ist building a corliss
engine model.The original comes from the company Andre Berger in Thann,
France. We take several hundreds of fotos and made also drawings from this
interesting engine. Unfortunately we heard, that this engine should also given
to scrab. On your homepage we found another very interesting engine to build
as a model and that means your Imroved Greene Engine. We would like to ask you
for more information about this engine. Do you know the patent number of mr.
Greene`s engines. To build a working model to exakt scale, we need every
information, which we can get about it. It would be a great help, if we would
know the patent number of the Improved Greene engine. Can you help us?
Thank you very much for an answer and have a nice day
