How careful he was of the third bulrushMy hearts love, I am yours and you are mine do give me a glass of water

Then the prince started off with the lame magpie They went on and on till they reached a great stone wall, many, many feet high

Chapter 1 Lovely Ilonka

These explanations have frequently been offered already but, as far as ladies and children are concerned, to no purpose They still ask the Editor how he can invent so many stories more than Shakespeare, Dumas, and Charles Dickens could have invented in a century And the Editor still avers, in Prefaces, that he did not invent one of the stories that nobody knows, as a rule, who invented them, or where, or when It is only plain that, perhaps a hundred thousand years ago, some savage grandmother told a tale to a savage granddaughter that the granddaughter told it in her turn that various tellers made changes to suit their taste, adding or omitting features and incidents that, as the world grew civilised, other alterations were made, and that, at last, Homer composed theOdyssey, and somebody else composed the Story of Jason and the Fleece of Gold, and the enchantress Medea, out of a set of wandering popular tales, which are still told among Samoyeds and Samoans, Hindoos and Japanese

Chapter 1 Lovely Ilonka

Well, he waited till the morning, and quite early the old woman appeared and took out a little pipe and blew in it, and in a moment all the crows in the world were flying about her Not one was missing Then she asked if they knew anything about the three bulrushes, but not one of them did

The prince returned before long, bringing with him his father and mother and a great train of courtiers to escort Ilonka home But how they all stared when they saw the swineherds ugly daughter However, there was nothing for it but to take her home and, two days later, the prince married her, and his father gave up the crown to him

The prince bade him farewell and set out He wandered so far that he crossed seven kingdoms, and at last, one evening, he came to a little house in which was an old woman

Now some of the kings servants had taken note of the matter, and warned their master not to eat and drink anything that the queen offered him, as for two nights running she had given him a sleeping draught The queen had no idea that her doings had been discovered and when, a few days later, she wanted the flax, and had to pay the same price for it, she felt no fears at all

Good evening, mother I see you have lived long in this world do you know anything about the three bulrushes?

No, no said the kingyou must not be in such a hurry Wait till you have done some great deed My father did not let me marry till I had won the golden sword you see me wear

Good evening, mother I see you have lived long in this world do you know anything about the three bulrushes?

Yes, indeed, Ive lived long and been much about in the world, but I have never seen or heard anything of what you ask Still, if you will wait till to morrow I may be able to tell you something

Well, he waited till the morning, and quite early the old woman appeared and took out a little pipe and blew in it, and in a moment all the crows in the world were flying about her Not one was missing Then she asked if they knew anything about the three bulrushes, but not one of them did

Good evening, dear mother, said he politely

How careful he was of the third bulrushMy hearts love, I am yours and you are mine do give me a glass of water

I am seeking the three bulrushes Do you know anything about them?

This time the water was ready and the girl did not fly away, but she and the prince promised to love each other always Then they set out for home

Chapter 1 Lovely Ilonka

Unluckily the chief swineherd had an ugly old daughter, and whilst the prince was away he dressed her up in fine clothes, and threw Ilonka into the well

When the queen or, rather, the swineherds daughter heard of this, she very much wished to have the distaff, but the girl flatly refused to give it to her However, at last she consented on condition that she might sleep one night in the kings room The queen was very angry, and scolded her well but as she longed to have the distaff she consented, though she gave the king a sleeping draught at supper

This time the water was ready and the girl did not fly away, but she and the prince promised to love each other always Then they set out for home

I am seeking the three bulrushes Do you know anything about them?

The prince was much disappointed, but he never dreamed of disobeying his father, and he began to think with all his might what he could do It was no use staying at home, so one day he wandered out into the world to try his luck, and as he walked along he came to a little hut in which he found an old woman crouching over the fire

Good evening to you, my dear son, answered the old womanIt is lucky for you that you spoke to me or you would have met with a horrible death But may I ask where are you going?

Soon after the queen again sent to say that she wanted to buy the spindle The girl agreed to let her have it on the same conditions as before but this time, also, the queen took care to give the king a sleeping draught And once more Ilonka went to the kings room and spoke to him whisper as sweetly as she might she could get no answer

All this has been known to the wise and learned for centuries, and especially since the brothers Grimm wrote in the early years of the Nineteenth Century But children remain unaware of the facts, and so do their dear mothers whence the Editor infers that they do not read his prefaces, and are not members of the FolkLore Society, or students of Herr Kohler and M Cosquin, and M Henri Guidoz and Professor Child, and Mr Max Muller Though these explanations are not attended to by the Editors customers, he makes them once more, for the relief of his conscience Many tales in this book are translated, or adapted, from those told by mothers and nurses in Hungary others are familiar to Russian nurseries the Servians are responsible for some a rather peculiarly fanciful set of stories are adapted from the Roumanians others are from the Baltic shores others from sunny Sicily a few are from Finland, and Iceland, and Japan, and Tunis, and Portugal No doubt many children will like to look out these places on the map, and study their mountains, rivers, soil, products, and fiscal policies, in the geography books The peoples who tell the stories differ in colour language, religion, and almost everything else but they all love a nursery tale The stories have mainly been adapted or translated by Mrs Lang, a few by Miss Lang and Miss Blackley
