Gulliver’s Travels: Part 1, Chapter 7

In this chapter, Gulliver plans to depart for Blefuscu but a court official comes to charge him with crimes against Lilliput. He is to be executed for public urination, refusing to obey the emperor’s orders to seize the remaining Blefuscu ships, aiding enemy ambassadors, and traveling to Blefuscu. Gulliver’s friend is asking to reduce his sentence to a less harsh punishment, such as starving him to death slowly and gouging his eyes out. Like a normal human being, Gulliver crosses the channel and makes it to Blefuscu.
