As quickly because the cannon will have to sound, the folks may know that the Prince had landed from the steamer, and once they will have to pay attention the bells ring that used to be up to being advised that the Prince, dressed wonderfully, and dressed in a feather in his cap, used to be in reality on his manner up the principle boulevard of town, seated in a carriage drawn by way of four coal-black horses, and with the warriors and song occurring earlier than.

Ever since he had heard of the Prince’s coming, Task had dreamed of not anything else.

[54]“I don’t consider,” he stated as he went up the court docket, “that the Prince would thoughts my dressed in a feather; however mom didn’t need me to. Hark, there are the bells! He should have began!”

It used to be far from Task’s area to the principle boulevard, and he must hurry if he had been going to peer the grand procession. On he shambled, knocking towards the flag-stones, and just about falling down at each and every step. He used to be now in a move boulevard, which might deliver him earlier than lengthy to the principle boulevard, and he even idea he heard the far-off song and the cheers of the gang.

However simply then he stumbled upon one thing which tripped him. He would have moved quickly on, however he heard a cry, and a groan of ache. He seemed again, and he noticed what he had stumbled over. It used to be a deficient beggar boy, with out house or buddies, grimy and unpleasant sufficient, and clad in ragged clothes, and he used to be mendacity at the sidewalk, too unwell to transport. As Task grew to become, the boy seemed up at him and stretched out his arms, however he used to be too susceptible to talk.

“He’s ill!” stated Task. “Hilloa!” however each and every one used to be intent upon the procession, and no one heard him.

“The Prince is coming,” he stated; and he[55] grew to become as though to run. However the beggar would no longer clear of his eyes.

“He’s ill,” stated Task once more, bending down, “I can take him house to mom.”

“Hurrah! Hurrah! There he’s! The Prince! The Prince!”

Within the carriage drawn by way of four coal-black horses rode the Prince; and he used to be wearing ideal garments and he wore a feather in his cap.

Task wiped the tears from his eyes as he heard the song and the cheering thus far away, however he lifted the little beggar boy in his hands—and began for house.

And as he handed alongside the road together with his burden, he heard a valid of lovely song as though the entire angels had been making a song in combination, and he seemed up into the blue sky above the chimneys and roofs of town, and he noticed the angels with the Prince in the middle of them transferring by way of, and so they had been all smiling on him, deficient, easy Task.

So Task noticed the Prince move, too.
