“The bartender brought the drinks.  Hemingway took several large swallows and said he gets along fine with animals, sometimes better than with human beings.  In Montana, once, he lived with a bear, and the bear slept with him, got drunk with him, and was a close friend.”

– Lillian Ross, in her 1950 Profile of Ernest Hemingway
