John A. Wright
The post-office stand is well stocked with a good assortment of stationery,
confections, cigars and tobacco. The celebrated Messenger cigar is reputed
to be, by far, the best five cent cigar in this market. It can be found only
at the post-office stand. Mr. Wright has been actively engaged in business
for the past thirteen years, and on the 25th day of November, 1878 he stocked the stand in the post-office, and is now doing a good business in
his special line. All those wanting a good smoke for a nickel should not fail to give him a call.

Shelbyville" newspaper article, Henry Friday.
