Our friend, Lig Brown, of
Kenosha, was in the city today

friends. He brought with him a
valuable relic of the days of our
forefathers in the shape of a
continental bill of the value, in

dollars, and reads Ihusly: "This
bill entitles the bearer to receive
forty Spanish milled dollars of

silver, acocrding lo a resolution
passed by congress at Philadel
phia, September 20(11, 1778." The
signatures to the hill are so dim
