Notes
Content : Typed on border: "The American magazine vol. 1. Pub. 1835" Printed on border: "Of useful knowledge." "When the Europeans began to settle in North America, this animal was occasionally met on the Atlantic coast; but rarely to the east of the Appalachian Mountains. As early as the first discovery of Canada it was unknown in that country. At no very distant date, herds of them existed in the western parts of Pennsylvania, and as late as 1766, they were pretty numerous in Kentucky; but they have gradually retired before the whites, and are now rarely seen to the south of the Ohio, or on the east side of the Mississippi." Includes additional text.
