Theodore K. Hastings was the Vice President of the Federation of American Motorcyclists. He was out of Flatbush, Brooklyn, New York City and made publicity trips abroad to Cuba & England, competing successfully at times. His activity continued at least into 1908 where we found numerous different mentions of him in Vol. LVII of the Bicycling World & Motorcycle Review. Pertinent personal message handwritten on front complements the advertising intent: 'Dear Veda. Have just returned from an 800 mile trip on my Indian. The Hendee Co Spring-field, Mass make them but your local dealer will show you. They are fast, cheap and economical, and it dont(sic) take an expert to run it and keep it going. Want one. Harry'. Rare: no one else can show you this. The reason you do not see any more of these is probably because the newspaper objected to the use of all its presumably copyrighted article, text and illustration, for an unintended commercial purpose of another business. That was also the probable reason the card was mailed under cover, instead mailing exposed to public view as a postcard. After paying to make them, the salesman still want to use them, even when pressured by the Boston Herald! Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged 300-dpi scan (publication quality) in .jpg format for $3.75. can(b)m(b)nmg(h)
