    "The issue will go to the GNSO for discussion"

    Now there is a way to make sure that .TRAVEL
    names never see the light of day. Bring on
    the Lilliputians.

    "In the mean time, the Emperor held frequent Councils to debate what Course should be taken with me; and I was afterwards assured by a particular Friend, a Person of great Quality, who was looked upon to be as much in the Secret as any, that the Court was under many Difficulties concerning me. They apprehended my breaking loose, that my Diet would be very expensive, and might cause a Famine. Sometimes they determined to starve me, or at least to shoot me in the Face and Hands with poisoned Arrows, which would soon dispatch me: But again they considered, that the Stench of so large a Carcass might produce a Plague in the Metropolis, and probably spread through the whole Kingdom."

    "An Establishment was also made of six hundred Persons to be my Domesticks, who had Board-Wages allowed for their Maintenance, and Tents built for them very conveniently on each side of my Door. It was likewise ordered, that three hundred Taylors should make me a Suit of Cloaths after the Fashion of the Country: That six of his Majesty's greatest Scholars should be employ'd to instruct me in their Language: And, lastly, that the Emperor's Horses, and those of the Nobility, and Troops of Guards, should be frequently exercised in my sight, to accustom themselves to me. All these Orders were duly put in Execution, and in about three Weeks I made a great progress in learning their Language; during which time, the Emperor frequently honored me with his Visits, and was pleased to assist my Masters in teaching me. We began already to converse together in some sort; and the first Words I learnt were to express my Desire that he would please give me my Liberty, which I every day repeated on my Knees. His Answer, as I could apprehend it, was, that this must be a Work of Time, not to be thought on without the Advice of Council, and that first I must Lumos Kelmin pesso desmar lon Emposo; that is, swear a Peace with him and his Kingdom."
