SLEEPING BEAUTY IN THE WOOD.


nce there was a royal couple who grieved excessively because they had no children. When at last, after long waiting, the queen presented her husband with a little daughter, his majesty showed his joy by giving a christening feast, so grand that the like of it was never known. He invited all the fairies in the land;there were seven altogether;to stand godmothers to the little princess; hoping that each might bestow on her some good gift, as was the custom of good fairies in those days.

Nor; whether or not the day of fairies was over; did the princess ever see anything further of her seven godmothers. She lived a long and happy life, like any other ordinary woman, and died at length, beloved, regretted, but, the prince being already no more, perfectly contented.
