Glimpses of Florida, Ancient, Colonial and Modern free pdf Excerpt from Glimpses of Florida, Ancient, Colonial and Modern The writer desires to express his obligations to Bryant's "Popular History of the United Stales," and to Campbell's invaluable "Colonial West Florida," from which he has largely culled. Also to the following eminent writers, viz.: Messrs. Fairbanks, Kohl, Harrera, Hildreth, Shea, Martyr, Bancroft, Pagafetta, De Vera, Smith, De Beidman, French, Charlevox, Lascarbot, Brevoort, Murphy, De Barcia, Biddell, Hackett, Laudonnaire, Parkrnan, Hackluyt, and others. Should the reader question the writer's conservative estimate of the antiquity of Florida, he points to the fact that Professor Cope of Philadelphia has a creature which all naturalists are unanimous in pronouncing the first representative of the hoofed animal species. The animal is not alive, neither is it entire, so far as flesh and blood are concerned, but to the paleontologist, who cares only for the fossiled bones, the specimen is perfect. It is not larger than a yearling calf and not nearly so tall, and was found in the Wind River country in Wyoming. Professor Cope named it Phenacodus Prim vus when it was first discovered, giving it as his opinion that it was akin to a specimen which was found several years ago in France (the paleotherium), and which gave Cuvier and the other naturalists so much trouble to classify. At the time of the discovery of the French specimen the savants of Europe decided that it was the ancestor of the hoofed kingdom, but the Wind River fossil, which is easily distinguished as being a type of the same, is believed to be much more ancient. Cope's curiosity was found in rocks belonging to the eocene period, and the time when it grazed on the Western prairies has been placed as far back as 500,000 years.
