GRAHAM & LEEDS Buyers of Grain and Dealers in Coal

An excellent outlet for the marketing of grain productions is constantly furnished to the farmers of this section by the firm of Graham & Leeds, grain buyers and shippers. This firm began business six years ago and has built up during that period an extensive patronage. The highest cash market prices are constantly offered and every known facility is possessed to secure and enjoy excellent relations in the selling markets. Graham and Leeds are also dealers in the very best coal commodities and constantly offer these at lowest market prices. A. Graham and G. R. Leeds comprise the firm. Both gentlemen are old and esteemed residents of Sangamon county, are well known and popular. They have built up a thoroughly representative business through fair and honest dealings and exercise constant efforts to render prompt, satisfactory and efficient service.
