Zoology, Animal Behaviour, Scientific Practitioners, Politics, Nationalism
In an apparent reference to a new Anglo-French row, hopes that the 'learned zoologists' can 'find out the reason' why 'the [British] Lion hates Chanticleer's strain' [the crowing of the French Cock], and notes that 'it is a curious fact in zoology / That the growl of the Lion so works on the Cock, / That it sets his a crowing: and neither's apology / Addressed to the other, can soften the shock'.
