Protruding from a Hole just b Low the Light Eye socket in the cd. To ten a an Iron Spike six inches Long. Both Skeleton and Cage gave evidence being centuries old. The Bones crumbled and some fell into dust when exposed to air. The Teeth and Skull alone were sound. Hempstead one the oldest settlements in the East was founded in 1620. Within the memory Man the lot where the Cage was found has never been occupied by any Structure. The discovery appealing vividly to imagination invoked much speculation. Some thought the Skeleton was that a slave a convict subjected to the harsh a Gal penalties colonial times. Others thought it might be that a respectable citizen captured by pirates and subjected to piratical barbarity. May be Freak exhibit the sceptical recalled that about 50 years ago the lot was used by travelling Freak shows and suggested that Skeleton and Cage might be abandoned theatrical paraphernalia. The Cage was so constructed that its victim could neither stand lie prone sit. The bars hammered antique Iron were one and a half inches thick. There were four horizontal bars and four vertical bars.
