14.阿拉杜斯之王                     

 

  有一次,阿拉杜斯城里的长老们晋见国王,请求他颇令,禁止在城里饮用葡萄酒和其他酒精饮料。

  国王转过身去,冷冷一笑走开了。

  长老们惶惶不安地退下朝廷。

  遇到王宫门口,他们遇见了朝廷侍从长,他一见长老们面有难色,便明白了其中缘由。

  侍从长说道:"真可怜,朋友们,要是你们碰见国王醉了,他必定会恩准你们的请求。"

 

The King of Aradus

Once the elders of the city of Aradus presented themselves before the king, and besought of him a decree to forbid to men all wine and all intoxicants within their city.
And the king turned his back upon them and went out from them laughing.
Then the elders departed in dismay.

At the door of the palace they met the lord chamberlain. And the lord chamberlain observed that they were troubled, and he understood their case.
Then he said, "Pity, my friends! Had you found the king drunk, surely he would have granted you your petition."
