"Wild Man" account, 1852 - The Wild Max Again. We are credibly informed by...
The Wild Max Again. We are credibly informed by a gentleman of this city, that the "wild man" has been seen again in the swamps of Arkansas. He derived his information from two gentlemen, who were out hunting, and approached as near as twenty pace3 to him. His appearance was so frightful that they did not attempt to approach nearer. He is described by them as being about 7 feet 2 inches high, and covered completely with black hair, interspers ed now and then with gray. The story or the representations of him as last seen, pub lished in some of our papers, they pronounce untrue. He has no claws to his hands and feet, nor is he eip-ht or nine feet high: stil lie would be a curiosity worth seeing. We understand it is the intention of some of our citizens to capture him if possible. In the way of shows, he would be the wild mare, " with the " hippodrome " thrown in Memphis Express,
