A news item in the Allegan Journal, p. 3, reporting that Henry D. Post visited the editor last week. "The Hollanders are wide- awake on the subject of a railroad, and confident of the construction of a lake shore line within the next few years, thus bringing them in constant communication with the large cities of the west....The Hollanders are an energetic people and will undoubtedly push foward their railroad enterprises to successful completion."
