In her Hearts and Homes column on page 18 of Wallace’s Farmer periodical published on October 23, 1908, Mrs. Henry Wallace of Des Moines, Iowa, writes about her change of heart toward automobiles:
“At one time I was foolish enough to say I would never ride in an automobile.
"It is an illustration of the fact that we sometimes say things do things and later find we were mistaken.
"The time came when an automobile came into the family and I was invited to share a seat.
"It was not long until my ideas of automobiles and automobile riding were entirely reconstructed. …
"It is another illustration of the fact that we live and learn.”
