THE LIGHT PRINCESS.
VII. TRY METAPHYSICS.
After a long avoidance of the painful subject, the king and queen resolved to hold a council of three upon it; and so they sent for the princess. In she came, sliding and flitting and gliding from one piece of furniture to another, and put herself at last in an arm-chair, in a sitting posture. Whether she could be said to sit, seeing she received no support from the seat of the chair, I do not pretend to determine.
" My dear child," said the king, "you must be aware by this time that you are not exactly like other people."
" Oh, you dear funny papa ! I have got a nose, and two eyes, and all the rest. So have you. So has mamma."
