Gentlemen:- Your record will show that I bought a Hydraulic Cider Press from you through your salesman, Mr. C.S. Deppen, and this press has given entire satisfaction in all respects. I have run her for 2 seasons and didn't have a penny's worth of repairs to this date. I earned over $300 with the press last year, making cider at $.01 per gallon and the apple crop was poor. If I can advise any party wanting a cider press I should advise them to get a Monarch Hydraulic Press, as they do as they are recommended. I have no trouble with mine and I must say that the Monarch Machinery Co. has used me as gentlemen in all my dealings and I have also bought a Center Crank Ajax steam engine a few months ago from you, which I highly recommend. She has given good satisfaction so far.
Yours very respectfully,
J.H. Rockel, Justice of the Peace, Pond Hill, Luzerne Co., Pa.
Gentlemen:- We bought a Gasoline Engine of you in the year of 1905. We have done our threshing and cutting stalks and it gives us good satisfaction. We could not think of threshing any more without the Gasoline Engine. We have a one horse power Keystone Separator and run a hundred bushels of oats through in an hour and the horses stood in the stable laughing for the oats.

Gentlemen:- The 12 H.P. Portable Engine I bought from you gives perfect satisfaction. I run a French Burr Chopper and Crusher and can chop from 12 to 15 bushels of grain an hour. I also cut my fodder and have four silos and intend to fill them with my Engine. I intend to to get a Separator and want to do my own threshing, and it gives me all the power I want, and I do not think the gasoline costs any more than the coal would to run a Steam Engine, and I take it right in my barn and think it perfectly safe. I would not like to do without the Engine, and would therefore recommend it to any one in need of power.
Yours very truly,
W.J. Glessner, Somerset, Pa.
