I was surprised to see the 5 HP Abenaque on page 12 of
the December GEM. How the picture arrived in Bill
Vossler’s collection, I do not know, but it came from the same
negative as the picture I took of it many years ago after I
restored it. The engine now belongs to the Uphams in Whately,
Mass., and sports an Abenaque saw rig like that shown on page 13.
(It’s picture is in the February 1987 issue of GEM, page
9). There is a fine “centerfold” Abenaque picture in the September
1989 issue, pages 40 and 41.

The photo Bob refers to was not supplied by Bill Vossler but
came from our photo archives, where it was labeled 10 HP. Thanks
for setting the record straight. – Editor
