1832: The Purdy, Welch, Finch & Wright menagerie of 1832 (23), became Purdy, Welch & Co. in 1833. We believe Zebedee Macomber was a partner in this firm, though, as we mentioned, he was in Africa in 1832.

The Purdy, Welch & Co. caravan of 1833 was a very large one, viz: elephant Caroline, two leopards, lioness, two tigers, hyena, alpaca, African porcupine, two camels, two ichneumons, gazelle, young lion, two ostriches, zebra, llama, jaguar, polar bear, and panther.
