Attached is another new photograph of the MIT Steam tank.  Along with the photograph is a short 1920 history of the development along with the troubled trials and demonstrations of the tank.  The writeup starts right at the bottom of page 279 and continues over most of page 280 with the photograph.  Note that the armament of the steam powered flame thrower  is keep very secret, with only vague references to it and its developmental history. Also, no mention is made of the shipment of the tank to Europe at the end of WWI.
