A note by a writer of the Grand River Eagle, p. 2, expressing his view that if Governor Ransom had appointed Robert Hilton as Road Commissioner instead of Littlejohn, there would already be a road from Grand Rapids to Holland. Instead the Hollanders are trading with Chicago and Milwaukee instead of Grand Rapids which is their natural market.
Grand River Eagle, August 11, 1848, p. 2.
