Dubuque Weekly Observer August 12, 1854

One of our agents in writing to us, thus speaks of Bellevue. It's location is beautiful and commanding with several large stores, and one of the best Flouring Mills in the State of Iowa owned by E. G. Potter & Sons, who by their business tact and generosity, have done more for the farming community by paying better prices for wheat than any other mill on the river.

He also speaks of the Soublet House as being No. one, and decidedly the best he has met with during his travels. Persons traveling will find it to their comfort in making it one of their stopping places for a few days rest. Its proprietor Mr. Hazilip and landlady spare no pain in making their customers, feel perfectly at home; besides, they will at every meal find their table loaded with the very best that the country can afford, and served up in the best possible manner.
