The other day The Journal received a letter from John E. Humphries in which he writes that after the disappearance of Albert Lee from the Scott Township neighborhood, he received a letter from him written at Indianapolis on business matters and he is satisfied that Lee is still living.

At any rate it is a pretty well settled fact that neither Aaron nor James Vancleave knows anything of the whereabouts of the mysterious Albert Lee.
