Content: Printed on border: "Upon our road, we met an Arab with a goat, which he led about the country to exhibit, in order to gain a livelihood for itself and its owner. He had taught this animal, while he accompanied its movements with a song, to mount upon little cylindrical blocks of wood, placed successively one above the other." "The diameter of the upper cylinder, on which its four feet ultimately remained, until the Arab had ended his ditty, was only two inches; and the length of each cylinder was six inches." Written on border: "April 5, 1834" Includes additional text.
