Miss Helen A. Moffitt, daughter of
Sergt. James H. Moffitt, of the Elm
wood station, threw about $3,000 worth
of ambergris into the ocean off Pleas
ant View a few days ago. She did not
know what the ball of gray matter waa
that she kicked into the sea, but within
a few minutes she learned it was am
bergris, and on returning to the beach
found a small piece of it which may
have been detached from the mass she
threw away.
Miss Moffitt returned to her hotel
and told some guests about the object,
which looked to her to be about the
size- of a football. From her descrip
tion one guest said it was amtergris.
She went back to the beach and found
a small portion of it, and it proved to
be ambergris.
When she returned to her home at
29 Phillips street. Providence, R. I., she
told her father about her experience,
and Sergeant Moffitt had her find ana
lyzed. It proved to be ambergris of
the best quality and is worth $300 a
pound. The lump she threw into the
sea weighed about 10 pounds.
