Man vs Animal
Don't underestimate people/animal
The scientist underestimated Barney and he did not realize that he was getting smarter
“he has become interested in my library, dragging the books from the shelves, and going over them page by page.”
“If anybody reads this please do not disturb anything on the island but leeve it like it is as a shryn to Barney, especially the old well.”
“We are alone on the island now, Barney and I. It was something of a jolt to have to sack Tayloe after all these years but i had no alternative. The petter vandalisms i could have forgiven, but when he tried to poison Barney out of simple malice he was standing in the way of scientific progress”
