BUFFALOES

There are no buffaloes in America now, except Buffalo Bill...I can remember the time when I was a boy, when buffaloes were plentiful in America. You had only to step off the road to meet a buffalo. But now they have all been killed off. Great pity it is so. I don't like to see the distinctive animals of a country killed off.
- quoted in Melbourne Herald, September 26, 1895
