Shows a conversation between two bank clerks, one of whom, Gibbon, has rather simian features. The other clerk asks Gibbon whether he has seen the performing monkeys, to which he replies: 'Yes! By Jove, it's wonderful. I believe they'll get monkeys to talk and write soon'—thus implying that monkeys could do the work of bank clerks.
