During the rise in the river last week the ferry boat was out of repair,
and people wanting to get horses or teams across had to take it out in
wanting. Why not aggitate the bridge question? We can think
of nothing that would be of so much benefit to the entire county as a bridge
across the river at this place. Is it not rather remarkable that
a county as great and wealthy as ours cannot afford one bridge across the
river which cuts it in two nearly equal portions?
