This is Chelsea Bone.  In the picture is her first Maytag, at left a 3 HP Sattley serial #3030, and a 2 HP McCormick Deering in back. Chelsea's other Maytag model 92 is on the front of the trailer with three more Maytags. The picture was taken September 7, 1996 at the show in Salem, Illinois.

The other picture at right is from Eugene Friesehon, in the center with the hat, from Ciblo, Texas. Eugene sent Chelsea several pictures and letters after the article 'Her First Maytag and Her First Show' appeared in the February 1996 GEM. She also received a Maytag manual and wrench and a letter from Robert Kubisch.

Chelsea now has two Maytag engines and a 1937 square tub washer with a model 92 on it. She plans to wash her clothes at the next September 1997 show at Salem, Illinois! So, thanks to all you guys for taking the time to write to Chelsea.

P. S. Eugene sent Chelsea a special calendar with a picture of her in a pedal pull in 1995 that she sent to him. It sure was a nice Christmas gift!
