The author offers insights into England's kings, army and navy, and courts of law. The first monarch who ruled over the whole of England was named William, a man of remarkable bravery and valour. After him, England was ruled by many different kings until the sovereign power of England descended to a Queen, who is greatly celebrated, even in these days, for her sagacity and love of justice. George III, who now occupies the throne of England, is known for his bravery, wisdom, and high intention, and is otherwise praised. The royal army is distributed in different cantonments. The caste of English is superior to those of other European nations with respect to naval warfare.
