And they have provided the natives—from Kaiser Wilhelm down to the villagers of Chichacestenango—with a detailed and itemized list of what is expected of them and when.

    ech of yow, to shorte with oure weye,
    In this viage shal telle tales tweye
    To Caunterbury-ward, I mene it so,
    And homward he shal tellen othere two,
    Of aventures that whilom han bifalle.
