PRINCE RICARDO.
" Thank you, prince," said Ricardo, u for the weapon, which I shall learn to wield ; and I entreat you to honour me by receiving this fairy gift—which you do not need — a ring which makes all men faithful to the wearer."
The Prince of Wales bowed, and placed the talisman on his finger.
Ricardo then, after a few words of courtesy on both parts, picked up his useless carpet, took his farewell of the royal party, and, with Jaqueline still hidden under his collar, returned at full speed, but with a heavy heart, to Pantou-flia, where the palace gong was just sounding for luncheon.
Ricardo never interfered in foreign affairs again, but his ring proved very useful to Prince Charles, as you may have read in history.
