Gulliver’s Travels By Jonathan Swift

My father had a small estate in Nottinghamshire, and I was the third of five sons. When I was fourteen years old, he sent me to Cambridge University, where I remained three years and worked hard at my studies. The charge of keeping me in college was too great for my father, so I was bound apprentice to an eminent surgeon in London, where I resided four years. With small sums of money given to me by my father, I learned navigation and other parts of mathematics useful to those who intended to travel, as I always believed I would do some day.
