Excerpts from the novel 

"I am the king; I say to you, I am the king," went on Ignosi, drawing up his great stature to its full, cmd lifting his broad-bladed battle-axe above his head. "If there be any man among you who says that it is not so, let him stand forth and I will fight him now, and his blood shall be a red token that I tell you true. Let him stand forth, I say; " and he shook the great axe till it flashed in the sunlight. 

As nobody seemed inclined to respond to this heroic version of " Dilly, Dilly, come and be killed," our late henchman proceeded with his address. ☺

We'll give a good account of some of them, at any rate. Look here, Quatermain, this business is nasty, and one with which, properly speaking, we ought not to be mixed up, but we are in for it, so we must make the best of our job. Speaking personally, I had rather be killed fighting than any other way, and now that there seems little chance of our finding my poor brother, it makes the idea easier to me. But fortune favours the brave, and we may succeed- Anyway, the battle will be awful, and having a reputation to keep up, we shall need to be in the thick of the thing."
