Truck Works for Lou Dillon.

The New York Times
April 19, 1914


The Southern farm which is the present home of three of the greatest race horses the world has ever seen counts a motor truck as one of its most valuable assets.  Curles Neck Farm, at James River, Va., is the property of C. K. G. Billings, and on it the three speedsters, Uhlan, Lou Dillon, and The Harvester, are kept.  Blooded cattle are also bred there.  But, unlike the ordinary farm, horses are but little used in hauling service, according to a letter recently written by George W. Bedell, the manager, to a Toledo motor company.  Mr. Bedell says that a three-ton truck manufactured by the Toledo concern does practically all the work usually performed by horses, making daily trips between the farm and the City of Richmond, about fifteen miles distant.
