Landon Chronicles (1930): Siam: Mr Bulkley's Elephant (hour 55, clip 1)
Mr Bulkley bought a baby elephant and wanted to ship it to New York to the Museum of National History, where he was a contributor. His wife was traveling on the same ship and he wanted to save the fare of a keeper for the baby elephant. He brought the elephant to his house and had to hire a man to feed the elephant. Margaret and the kids went several times to watch it. He ended up paying quite some money for the all process in order to get the animal on the ship. A cable came from the US saying that there was no sale of elephant in the US at the present time. But the ship had already sailed. (Length 6:25)
