-"The above young men, Andrew D.
and Hosmer A. Brown, had just re
turned from California and were sup
posed to have considerable gold dust
about their clothes, and for recreation
they engaged in building a barn for the
old people on the historic homestead of
Deacon Zebulon Brown, their great
grandfather. Soon after they picked
up their belongings and ventured to
tne wilds of Minnesota, and there made
their fnture home in Mower county,
and named the township Brownsdale.

the very welcome copy of your pap. r
of Sept. 5, containing the account of
finding sealed bottle deposited by my

home in North Stonington, Matthew

so that future generations might find
out who the builders were, and so battl

Richard B. Wheeler found. It was all
in a spirit of fun that we did it, and the
one who wrote it, A: D. Brown, is now
living with his second wife and son in
Minneapolis, hale and hearty at the
age of ninety-one years. It is along

learning the carpenter's trade at Dea

wonderful changes in this country since
that time. I am now seventy-nine
years old, living Brownsdale, a very
pleasant village that has many charms
for me, but 1 hope to visit the home of
my boyish days again and may call
that way in case I spend the winter in
Florida. Very truly yours,

The Hudson "Twenty" Has ample leg room. There is no
Roadster made, regardless of prict, that affords more comfort
to those who ride in it. From the front seat to the dash there
is space of 31 inches.
Selective, Sliding, Gear Transmission
The Hudson "Twenty" has a- sliding gear
transmission, selective type, three speeds forward
and reverse, such as you find on thePackard,
Peerless, Pierce, Lozier and other high grade
cars. Most other low-priced cars do not have
this type of transmission.
Four Cylinder Motor
The motor is vertical, four cylinder, four cycle,
water cooled, known as the Renault type, 3|"
bore and 4J9 ^.roke. And Renault motors are
the pride of France.
The frame of the Hudson "Twenty" is of the
best open hearth stock. It is 3£n 1£D section,
-accurately and. carefully riveted together with
hot rivets, and braced-against all possible strains.
Our frames are made by the Hydraulic Pressed
Steel Company of Detroit, the company which
makes frames also for the high-priced Stearns cars.
Single Piece I-Beam Axle
The front axle is a one piece drop-forgeid I-beam
section, of the best graae of open hearth steel,
carefully heat treated. The PeerleSS, Tierce,
Matheson, Lozier and other high grade cars use
drop-forged front axles.
The rear axle Is of the semi-floating type, shaft-'
driven, proved out by a score of makers.
Three-quarter Elliptic Rear Springs
There is mors rake to the steering post thmn jg
found on the average car.

There have been many low priced cars, but never one so big, strong, speedy and good looking as this one.
In the Hudson "Twenty" you get the best automobile value ever offered for less than $1000. In this car
you find that something called class—that something which other cars at or near this price have lacked.
Most low priced cars have been too small. In the Hudson
^Twenty" you get a big car. Note the long wheel base—100
inches. Note the big, strong 32-inch wheels, the large radiator,
big hood, staunch, clean-made frame.
Some High Grade Features of this' 191Q Model
The springs are of .special steel, semi-elliptic
in front, and three-quarter-elliptic in the rear,
such as you find in the Renault, Chalmers-Detroit,
Pierce and others.
Lubrication is of the pump circulated, constant
splash system, which has proved so satisfactory
on the Oldsmobile, Chalmers-Detroit and other
highly successful cars.
The body is composed of the best grade of ash,
carefully placed and securely bolted to the frame.
Seats are large and roomy and well upholstered.
Two Color Schemes Used
You have your choice of two tasty color
schemes on the "Twenty": a rich maroon, with
mouldings and edges of bonnet striped in black
leather blue black. Or battleship
gray all over with
apple green stripings and upholstering. Fenders,
fender irons, pedals, and top irons are enameled
Tilack. The radiator, steering column, side lamp
brackets, hub caps, and side control levers are of
brass. Steps are aluminum.
