6331. PALEONTOLOGY, Mammoth.—[continued].

I have heard of the discovery
of some large bones, supposed to be of
the mammoth, at about thirty or forty miles
distant from you; and among the bones found,
are said to be some which we have never
been able to procure. The first interesting
question is, whether they are the bones of the
mammoth? The second, what are the particular
bones, and could I possibly procure
them? * * * If they are to be bought I will
gladly pay for them whatever you shall agree
to as reasonable.—
To Robert R. Livingston. Washington ed. iv, 337. Ford ed., vii, 463.
