Once upon a time

Mary Kingsley, lors d'une conférence au Cheltenham Ladies College, en 1898 
Once a hippopotamus and I were on an island together, and I wanted one of us to leave. I preferred it should be myself, but the hippo was close to my canoe, and looked like staying, so I made cautious and timorous advances to him and finally scratched him behind the ear with my umbrella and we parted on good terms.
