1 If Pilkington and his men would help them, the day might yet be won.
2 One of Mr. Pilkington's men was standing on the other side of the hedge.
3 This was what came of rebelling against the laws of Nature, Frederick and Pilkington said.
4 All relations with Foxwood had been broken off; insulting messages had been sent to Pilkington.
5 By seeming to be friendly with Pilkington he had forced Frederick to raise his price by twelve pounds.
6 Meanwhile, through the agency of Whymper, Napoleon was engaged in complicated negotiations with Frederick and Pilkington.
7 The relations between Napoleon and Pilkington, though they were only conducted through Whymper, were now almost friendly.
8 The animals distrusted Pilkington, as a human being, but greatly preferred him to Frederick, whom they both feared and hated.
9 It was well seasoned, and Whymper had advised Napoleon to sell it; both Mr. Pilkington and Mr. Frederick were anxious to buy it.
10 Throughout the whole period of his seeming friendship with Pilkington, Napoleon had really been in secret agreement with Frederick.
11 Its owner, Mr. Pilkington, was an easy-going gentleman farmer who spent most of his time in fishing or hunting according to the season.

13 When time passed and the animals had evidently not starved to death, Frederick and Pilkington changed their tune and began to talk of the terrible wickedness that now flourished on Animal Farm.
14 It was noticed that whenever he seemed on the point of coming to an agreement with Frederick, Snowball was declared to be in hiding at Foxwood, while, when he inclined toward Pilkington, Snowball was said to be at Pinchfield.

16 It now appeared that Snowball was not, after all, hiding on Pinchfield Farm, and in fact had never been there in his life: he was living--in considerable luxury, so it was said--at Foxwood, and had in reality been a pensioner of Pilkington for years past.
17 Except through Whymper, there was as yet no contact between Animal Farm and the outside world, but there were constant rumours that Napoleon was about to enter into a definite business agreement either with Mr. Pilkington of Foxwood or with Mr. Frederick of Pinchfield--but never, it was noticed, with both simultaneously.
