Excerpt from The Massachusetts Agricultural Repository and Journal, 1819, Vol. 5: With Engravings
Some generous publick-spirited gentlemen, out of the board, and a few within it, subscribed asum to purchase the cattle, in order that they might be exhibited at Brighton, and at a certain, inevitable, expected loss. They paid 1050 dollars for the oxen. Col. Chapin drove them down, and, as was agreed, took the premium himself in part payment for them. They were not exhibited, as they might have been, for profit as a show. There has been, as was expected, a loss, but the remuneration con sists in having shewn to thousands bf spectators, the finest animals probably at that moment in the world, the pro ducts of the rich pastures of Massachusetts.
