Exploring the West

Mushirul Hasan

Oxford University Press

The author comments on the food of the English, the flowers and animals he observed in England, as well as inns, mode of travel, and agriculture. He found thousands of roses, which were all very large, in England. The country is so well cultivated, that there is not a biswah, or even a yard of ground, on which crops are not raised. There is a large and extensive house of accommodation at every stage, where corn and hay (for the horses) and meat and drink for the people can be had. There are stage-coaches, which change horses every five or six coss, and these coaches travel both night and day. One horse in England, in terms of bulk and height, would be equivalent to two horses of India. The dogs of England are greatly celebrated: they are taught to perform many wonderful and surprising things.

Keywords:   England, food, flowers, animals, inns, travel, agriculture, dogs of England, horses, stage-coaches
