BOSTON DAILY TIMES
MONDAY MORNING, APRIL 1, 1839
When will wonders ever cease? Robert Lincoln, Esq., Agent of the New York Western Lumber Company has just returned from the Saint Peters River, near the head of steamship navigation, on the upper Mississippi, bringing with him a living American Orang Outang, or wild man of the woods, with two small cubs, supposed to be about three months old.
Mr. Lincoln informs us that he went out to the north-west as Agent of the New York Lumber Company, in July last, with a view to establish extensive saw-mills, on the pine lands near the Falls of Saint Anthony; which lead to the capture of the extraordinary creatures mentioned above.
