Whale Washed Ashore Near Moss Beach

“A fifty-foot whale was driven ashore at Princeton-by-the-Sea, two miles south of here [Moss Beach] last night. The animal is stranded so high that spectators may walk out to it almost dryshod. Whalers from the whalery at Moss Landing in Monterey County killed the whale this morning as soon as they were notified of its landing.”
