But in a little while she became used to me, and was very kind to me. There was a large piece of meat on a plate about eight metres across. The farmer put me on the table, with some small pieces of bread and meat in front of me. I was very frightened of falling off the edge of the table, which was ten metres from the ground. The farmer and his family were delighted to watch me eating food with my own small knife and fork. But when I started walking across the table to the farmer, his youngest son, a boy of about ten, picked me up by the legs. He held me so high in the air that my whole body trembled.
Fortunately his father took me away at once, and angrily hit the boy hard on the head. But I remembered how cruel children can be to small animals, and I did not want the boy to take his revenge on me.
So I fell on my knees and asked them not to punish the child any more. They seemed to understand. Just then I heard a noise behind me.
It sounded like twelve machines running at the same time. I turned my 29 But in fact, because I showed no fear, there was no danger, and the cat even seemed a little afraid of me. He immediately started crying and screaming, because he wanted to play with me. His mother smiled and put me in his hand. When he picked me up and put my head in his mouth, I shouted so loudly that he dropped me.
Luckily, I was not hurt, but it showed me how dangerous life was going to be in Brobdingnag. After eating, the farmer, or my master, as I shall now call him, went back to his work in the fields. I think he told his wife to take good care of me, because she put me carefully on her bed and locked the bedroom door. I was exhausted, and slept for two hours. When I woke up, I felt very small and lonely in such a huge room, and on such a large bed.
Suddenly I saw two huge rats run towards me across the bed. One came right up to my face, so I pulled out my sword and cut open his stomach. The other ran away at once.

I walked up and down on the bed, to control my trembling legs, and looked at the dead rat. It was as large as a big dog, and its tail measured two metres. She was delighted that I was not hurt, and threw the dead rat out of the window. My master had a daughter who was about nine years old. She was given the special responsibility of taking care of me, and I owe her my life.

During my stay in her country we were always together, and she saved me from many dangerous situations. She was good at sewing, and managed to make some clothes for me in the thinnest material available. She also made me a small bed, which was placed on a shelf too high for rats to reach.
Perhaps the most useful thing she didwas to teach me the language, so that in a few days I could speak it quite well. One of them came to see me, and as I walked towards him across the table, he put on his glasses. His eyes behind the glasses 31 Ithought this was very funny, and laughed loudly. Unfortunately, that made himveryangry. Iheardhimwhisperingto mymaster all evening, and I was sorry I had laughed at him.
Next day Glumdalclitch came to me in tears. I must do what your father wants. So the next day my master and his daughter got on their huge horse.

Glumdalclitch carried me inside a small box, which had air-holes so that I could breathe. When we arrived at the market town, my master hired the largest room in the public house, and placed me upon the table there. His daughterstayedcloseto meto makesurethatnobodyhurtme. Iwas told to speakintheir language, pull out mysword, drink from a cup, and do other things to amuse the crowd. Only thirty people were allowed in to see me at one time.
On that firstdayeverybodywantedto seeme, andIwas shownto over three hundred and fifty people. Ididnot look forward to this at all. I was so'tffed with the journey and the entertainmentthat Icould onlywalk and speakwith difficulty for the next three days. Even when we were at home, neighbours and friends from all parts of the country came to look at me, and my master made me work hard to amuse them.
So I had almost no rest. My master finallyrealized that he could make a fortune by showing me to people all over the country. So about two months after my arrival in Brobdingnag, we left the farm and started our journey to the capital. As before, Glumdalclitch came with us, to take care of me.
