Egyptians in the USA?

The Buffalo Express and

An Egyptian Coin Found in Mississippi.

The Jackson Miss, Eagle says that several years

Ago, a veritable Egyptian silver coin, worth about

Thirty cents of our currency, was in digging a

Well near Tullahoma, in that State, found embedded

In the earth, about thirty under ground.

This is one of those isolated facts which are from

time to time coming to light, from which has

Been drawn the inference that this country was

Known centuries before the time of Columbus,

Not only to the Northmen and other Europeans,

But to the Egyptians, the Phoenicians, and even

To the Chinese.
