Notes
Content : Written on border: "Apr. 6, 1833" Printed on border: "The general aspect of the beaver, at first view, would remind one of a very large rat, and seen at a little distance it might be readily mistaken for the common muskrat. But the greater size of the beaver, the thickness and breadth of its head, and its horizontally flattened, broad and scaly tail, render it impossible to mistake it, when closely examined, for any other creature." "Their extraordinary instincts are applied to two principal objects : 1. To secure a sufficient depth of water to prevent it from being frozen to the bottom; 2. To construct huts, in which they pass the winter." Includes additional text.
