In the mean while, the Emperess knowing the Colours
of her own Country, sent a Letter to their General,
and the rest of the chief Commanders, to let them
know, that she was a great and powerful Princess,
and came to assist them against their Enemies; wherefore
she desired they should declare themselves, when
they would have her help and assistance.
|And if any should like the world I have made,
and be willing to be my subjects, they may imagine themselves such, and they are such—I mean
in their minds, fancies or imaginations. But if they cannot endure to be subjects, they may
create worlds of their own and govern themselves as they please.
