Westward The Course Of Empire

There’s absolutely not any introduction. It seems absurd for me to pretend that anybody is admired by my existence here. I invited myself if I am to be frank about it.

The Mediterranean Sea, that had been every civilization’s transit center, was their own lake. And throughout their empire, from Scotland into Syria, they pushed on the streets –streets that fifteen years were primary arteries of European transport.

Augustus devised the articles: initial for signs intelligence, to maneuver messages and couriers in the rates; then for intellect. He established the post-chaises, in order that as Gibbon says, when dispatches were composed people who were present may be contested from the Emperor.
