24 STORY OF THE EMPERORS NEW CLOTHES
' Spun clothes are so comfortable that one would imagine one had nothing on at all; but that is the beauty of it ! '
' Yes,' said all the knights, but they could see nothing, for there was nothing there.
' Will it please your Majesty graciously to take off your clothes.'
The Emperor comes to see his new clothes
said the impostors, ' then we will put on the new clothes, here before the mirror.'
The Emperor took off all his clothes, and the impostors placed themselves before him as if they were putting on each part of his new clothes which was ready, and the Emperor turned and bent himself in front of the mirror.
