At Greenville, Bond county, Illinois, a meeting of citizens opposed to a constitutional convention, from Fayette, Bond and Montgomery counties, was held Saturday, Feb. 7, 1824. Francis Kirkpatrick, Esq., was called to the chair and Horatio Newhall appointed secretary. The purpose of the meeting was to fix upon a candidate for senator at the approaching election upon whom the friends of freedom might concentrate their efforts. Members pledged their support to Francis Kirkpatrick, Esq., Bond county, as a senator in the next legislature. (Copyright, 1917, W. G. Chapman.)

I came across an old matchbook from a restaurant on U.S. 40 called the "Bel Air Restaurant" in Greenville, ILL. .... The flip side is for another restaurant on U.S. 40 called the "Salad Bowl Cafe" in Greenup. ILL. I don't know anymore about the restaurants but I'm sure it will bring back fond memories to someone.  Susie
