Writes of Robert Southey : 'he is enlightened enough to civilise the ourang-outang, or to preside at the assemblies of those mimics of the human race, called apes and monkies [sic], in the forest of Siam'. Warns the Black Dwarf to be careful in his political activities: a 'statesman may tread thee into atoms in the street, and plead accident for the adventure'. (681)
