A quote from the Baron...
"
Moritz flourished exceedingly. He slept with me in my bed and received a
most excellent education. He never left me while I was in Ostend and
obtained my entire affection. Month by month Moritz grew, and gradually my
tender little lap-dog became a colossal, big beast.

Once I even took him with me. He was my first observer. He behaved very
sensibly. He seemed much interested in everything and looked at the world
from above. Only my mechanics were dissatisfied when they had to clean the
machine. Afterwards Moritz was very merry."
