* Sea serpent - monster
* Nahant, Massachusetts
Of interest are not one but two articles on "The Sea Serpent", the first on page 1, noting in part: "...when off Nahant, he...had a fair view of the Sea Serpent. The appearance of this marine monster was such as has been often before described...the Sea Serpent was only about twice the length of the vessel distant from them...he sunk down in two the water and disappeared."
The other report is on page 3, also headed: "The Sea Serpent" which is lengthier and more descriptive.
Four pages, nice condition.
