employed by P. 0. Wilkes, captured near
this place a turtle weighing 145 pounds
and measuring 3 feet in length. Mr.
Wilkes had it nicely dressed, and after
i his crew, consisting of a dozen
men, divided the remainder with the
families of T. J. Lowry and L. L. Stem,
all feasting royally on bis ttirtleship.

which it may be sold as a bread tray
or appropriated to some other gr
