The King says to Napoleon: "My little friend Grildrig, you have made a most admirable panegyric upon yourself and Country, but from what I can gather from your own relation [i.e. story] & the answers I have with much pains wringed & extorted from you, I cannot but conclude you to be one of the most pernicious little odious reptiles that nature ever suffer'd to crawl upon the surface of the Earth".
