Lee Center, April 23, 1879

A. J. Eames, P. M., has removed his office and millinery store to the Hunt Block and has got settled in the discharge of his duties. He thinks he will be better situated in his new store than where it has been kept heretofore, and the public will be better accommodated. The builidng now occupied has been repaired extensively. The Army Post has rooms in it. J. S. Field has occupied part of it for several years as a boot and shoe store and shop. The Post office is now added and a suite of rooms, which Mr. Eames will occupy as a dwelling, and soon the Lee Center House will stand as it stood three or four years ago - the the central place of attraction. Mr. John Harris and Son have a blacksmith shop opposite the P. O., and Lee Center House, and I understand that Mr. John Anderson has opened a wagon shop in the upper part of Harris builidng where his is prepared to carry on making the woodwork to and repairing wagons in the best style. He is our barber, as reported a week or two ago, but he does not intend to shave his employers in the manufacture of wagons.
