Simms' Gallery Figures and Commentary:
- Charlemagne, though unable to to write his own name, promoted schools, art, civilization, and was the most powerful and enterprising monarch of his day.
- James Boswell, the celebrated biographer of Dr, Samuel Johnson. He resembled Johnson as a fly does an elephant, while his selfassurance and impudence has rarely been equalled.
- Cinghalese, a gentleman from the mountains of Ceylon.
- John Locke, a distinguished philosopher.
- Tasmanian, an aboriginee of Tasmania. His head does not, while his face does, manifest his cruel and cannibal habits.
- Lord Byron, a poet of marvellous genius.
- Cassius, a famous Roman general, described in Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar."
- Rev. Rowland Hill, an English clergyman.
- Lavater, an eloguent Swiss preacher, poet, and physiognomist.
- Paul I, Emperor of Russia, as his feeble face indicates, he was one of the weakest rulers in Europe.
