  GrahamClayton: Here is an excerpt from an article in the "Brooklyn Eagle", dated 16 September 1888, about Moehle's role as the human operator of the automaton "Ajeeb":

"The gentleman who plays chess in the automaton box, and who is known as Ajeeb is Mr Charles A Moehle, of St Paul, Minnesota, and he stood fourth in last week's Cincinatti tourney. His task in representing the automaton figure at the Eden Musee, is a very difficult one, inasmuch as he is cooped up within a wax figure and its draperies, divested of most of his clothing, without a chance to stretch himself, and for three hours twice a day, with only a partial view of the chess board before him, and that obtained only through a masked peep hole."
