"Animal Farm" Speech Snowball

652 words - 3 pages

Comrades, I stand here before you on this Sunday morning to bring forth my final solicitation to you for the ratification of the building of the windmill. In a minute or so, I will make all the beauties of the windmill known to you.Weeks ago, when I investigated our farm and surveyed the ground, I discovered that the knoll is the highest point on the farm, and it is certainly the ideal place to build the windmill on.

You horses, there will be no more need for you to run that old and lousy chaff-cutter, it will be replaced with a new, and electrically operated one. The same thing will happen to the mangel slicer, the turnip slicer, and the circular saw. There will be no need for anyone to run them, because all...
