"Jack is greatly improved, but bites now & then as Yr Lp may remember he could when you was here. The battles between him & my Boy Gaetano (whom you may remember to have a St Januarius, a I.C., & a Pulinchinello tattooed on his arm) when he is naked & going into the Sea with me in the morning are really curious. He never bites him but plays him all sorts of tricks, his favorite one is to pull him by his --- & then he always smells his fingers; the other day he pull'd rather hard & the boy clapped his two hands upon it whenever the monkey approached" (Sir William Hamilton to Lord Herbert, Naples, 11 July 1780).
