St. John United Church of Christ, Palatine, IL ca. 1885 Emil Witzmann (attr.) organ Manual: 8' Open Diap. 8' Stop. Diap. 8' Dulciana (a) 4' Principal 4' Flute (tc) 2 2/3' Twelfth 2' Fifteenth a 1-12 Stopped Diapason Pedal: 16' Sub Bass Coupler From Erik Matson: There is a "Piano" foot pedal, which when pushed takes off all the stops from the right stop jamb (all the principals and 4' flute), and there is another foot pedal (presumably called "Forte" although the label is missing) which brings on all those stops from the right jamb.
