August 31 1830

Received this from a dear friend Dated August 31 1830 from the National Journal Washington D.C.  In it is an article which states (Some of the papers have contained an account of an enormous beast. which made it appearance recently in Kentucky, whose roaring could be heard at a great distance and whose voracious appetite was such to give the alarm to the farmers for the safety of their cattle.)
