The Bald Knight

: Aesop's Fables

A BALD KNIGHT, who wore a wig, went out to hunt. A sudden puff

of wind blew off his hat and wig, at which a loud laugh rang

forth from his companions. He pulled up his horse, and with

great glee joined in the joke by saying, "What a marvel it is

that hairs which are not mine should fly from me, when they have

forsaken even the man on whose head they grew."
