[Wilford Woodruff]
Visited the big bone lick in Boone County KY. which is the Place Whare those large bones of enormous size were dug from the earth & have been exhibited in many Parts of America & Europe. It is conjectured that those animals while in the lick got mired & Perished. It is said or judged from the measurment of those bones that the animal was 36 feet in length & 15 in highth. No record yet gives us an account of those animals. Will not some record of the Nephites yet tell us?
