First Biennial Report of the Montana State Board of Horticulture to the Legislative Assembly of the State of Montana for the Years 1899 1900 (Classic Reprint)
Chapter V. The Author, at his master's commands, informs him of the state of England. The causes of war among the princes of Europe. The Author begins to explain the English Constitution.
The reader may please to observe that the following extract of many conversations I had with my master contains a summary of the most material points, which were discoursed at several times for above two years: his honor often desiring fuller satisfaction as I farther improved in the Houyhnhnm tongue. I laid before him, as well as I could, the whole state of Europe: I discoursed of 'trade and manufactures, of arts and sciences: and the answers I gave to all the questions he made, as they arose upon several subjects, were a fund of conversation not to be exhausted. But I shall here only set down the substance of what passed between us concerning my own country, reducing it into order as well as I can, without any regard to time or other circumstances, while I strictly adhere to truth. My only concern is that I shall hardly be able to do justice to my master's arguments and expressions: which must needs suffer by my want of capacity, as well as by a translation into our barbarous English.
In obedience therefore to his honor's commands, I related to him the Revolution under the Prince of Orange: the long war with France entered into by the said Prince, and renewed by his succes sor the present queen: wherein the greatest powers of Christendom were engaged, and which still continued. I computed at his request, that about a million of Yahoos might have been killed in the whole progress of it: and perhaps a hundred or more cities taken, and five times as many Ships burned or sunk.
