1900, L. Frank Baum, chapter 23, in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz:
- "My third command to the Winged Monkeys," said Glinda, "shall be to carry you to your forest. Then, having used up the powers of the Golden Cap, I shall give it to the King of the Monkeys, that he and his band may thereafter be free for evermore."
