I admire your courage. But do take precautions. Do not do it alone and make sure you are sufficiently trained and rehearsed properly for the search.
Should the authorities stand in the way, then back off, or get the necessary clearances even right up to Congress for the approval to conduct your

I would again advise those who believe this tale to check other newspapers of the time to find backup material that supports the contention. I doubt
that it can be found except rewrites or wholesale copying of the article itself. That was very common in those days of limited communication. The

I spent a lot of time a couple of decades ago researching the newspaper file archives at the University of Illinois. It has what is probably the
largest collection of old newspapers/micros of any library in the US. I was researching the old "airship" stories of the late 1880s into the early

Twain/Samual Clements made his fame, writing tall stories as a newspaper reporter about such things as jumping frogs, etc.
