- Scope and Content
- An undated broadside advertising an exhibition by J. E. Fisher of a mummified Indian mother and child found in Arizona in 1892. Gives information about them and how popular an attraction it is. Also on display is a petrified baby found at Horseshoe Cave, Ky. in 1894. States admission fee and viewing times. This is probably one of such hoaxes common at that time
