Pounds Weight, and Only 21 Years of
The following From the Chicago
Tribune Speaks for Itself
"The 'big Injun' is well worth
seeing. He is a crowder and no
mistake. Imagine a man a foot taller
then Long John, (Wentworth, the
present Mayor of Chicago,) and as
stout built to his height, as George
Anderson or Alderman Sitts, and you
have some idea of this giant's size.
He is 7 feet 7 inches high, and
weighs 486 pounds, or nearly a
quarter of a ton! We assisted
in taking some measurement of him.
He measures around the chest, 58
inches. It takes a good size
man to girt 38, and a majority of
men fall below 36 inches. His
outstretched arms are nearly 8 feet,
and from the point of his shoulder
to the extremity of his hand is 3
feet 4 inches. His thigh
measures 34 inches in
circumference," &c., &c.
