In the ancient city of London, on a certain autumn day in the second quarter of the sixteenth century, a boy was born to a poor family of the name of Canty, who did not want him. On the same day another English child was born to a rich family of the name of Tudor, who did want him. All England wanted him too.

Let us skip a number of years.

London was fifteen hundred years old, and was a great town-for that day. It had a hundred thousand inhabitants-some think double as many. The streets were very narrow, and crooked, and dirty, especially in the part where Tom Canty lived, which was not far from London Bridge.

inhabitants - निवासी

crooked - वक्र, धूर्त, कुटिल, झुका हुआ, झुका हुआ, असुर, मुड़ा हुआ

bet - दांव लगाना

nan - दादी मां

restricted - बाधित करना, सीमित करना, परिमित/सीमित करना

All Offal Court was just such another hive as Canty’s house. Drunkenness, riot and brawling were the order, there, every night and nearly all night long. Broken heads were as common as hunger in that place. Yet little Tom was not unhappy. He had a hard time of it, but did not know it.

When he came home empty-handed at night, he knew his father would Curse him and thrash him first, and that when he was done the awful grandmother would do it all over again and improve on it; and that away in the night his starving mother would slip to him stealthily with any miserable scrap or crust she had been able to save for him by going hungry herself, notwithstanding she was often caught in that sort of treason and soundly beaten for it by her husband.

No, Tom’s life went along well enough, especially in summer. He only begged just enough to save himself, for the laws against mendicancy were stringent, and the penalties heavy; so he put in a good deal of his time listening to good Father Andrew’s charming old tales and legends about giants and fairies, dwarfs and genii, and enchanted castles, and gorgeous kings and princes.

He often read the priest’s old books and got him to explain and enlarge upon them. His dreamings and readings worked certain changes in him, by- and-by. His dream-people were so fine that he grew to lament his shabby clothing and his dirt, and to wish to be clean and better clad.

One January day, on his usual begging tour, he tramped despondently up and down the region round about Mincing Lane and Little East Cheap, hour after hour, bare-footed and cold, looking in at cook-shop windows and longing for the dreadful pork-pies and other deadly inventions displayed there-for to him these were dainties fit for the angels; that is, judging by the smell, they were-for it had never been his good luck to own and eat one. There was a cold drizzle of rain; the atmosphere was murky; it was a melancholy day. At night Tom reached home so wet and tired and hungry that it was not possible for his father and grandmother to observe his forlorn condition and not be moved-after their fashion; wherefore they gave him a brisk cuffing at once and sent him to bed. For a long time his pain and hunger, and the swearing and fighting going on in the building, kept him awake; but at last his thoughts drifted away to far, romantic lands, and he fell asleep in the company of jewelled and gilded princelings who live in vast palaces, and had servants salaaming before them or flying to execute their orders. And then, as usual, he dreamed that he was a princeling himself.

Chapter III. Tom’s meeting with the Prince.

Tom got up hungry, and sauntered hungry away, but with his thoughts busy with the shadowy splendours of his night’s dreams.

ladyship - भवती{भद्रमहिला/एक पदवी}, तत्र भवती, रानी जी

He looked up and encountered a solemn warning in my Lord St. John’s eyes.

Once the giddy little Lady Jane fired a simple Greek phrase at Tom. The Princess Elizabeth’s quick eye saw by the serene blankness of the target’s front that the shaft was overshot; so she tranquilly delivered a return volley of sounding Greek on Tom’s behalf, and then straightway changed the talk to other matters.

When it came out that the little ladies were to accompany him to the Lord Mayor’s banquet in the evening, his heart gave a bound of relief and delight, for he felt that he should not be friendless, now, among that multitude of strangers; whereas, an hour earlier, the idea of their going with him would have been an insupportable terror to him.

Tom’s Guardian Angels, the two lords, had had less comfort in the interview than the other parties to it. They felt much as if they were piloting a great ship through a dangerous channel; they were on the alert constantly, and found their office no child’s play.

Guardian Angels - सुरक्षात्मक देवताओं

Channel - नहर, चैनल इत्यादि

alert - सतर्क

constantly - लगातार, सदा

Wherefore, at last, when the ladies’ visit was drawing to a close and the Lord Guilford Dudley was announced, they not only felt that their charge had been sufficiently taxed for the present, but also that they themselves were not in the best condition to take their ship back and make their anxious voyage all over again.

There was a pause now, a sort of waiting silence which Tom could not understand. He glanced at Lord Hertford, who gave him a sign-but he failed to understand that also. The ready Elizabeth came to the rescue with her usual easy grace. She made reverence and said-

pause - रुकना, ठहरना

glanced - चमकना, ग्लांस करना, नजर डालना, दृष्टि डालना, सरसरी नजर, नजरअ

rescue - बचाना

"Have we leave of the prince’s grace my brother to go?"

Tom said-

"Indeed your ladyships can have whatsoever of me they will, for the asking; yet would I rather give them any other thing that in my poor power lieth, than leave to take the light and blessing of their presence hence. Give ye good den, and God be with ye!

whatsoever - जो कुछ, कुछ भी, कुछ भी, ज़रा भी

obey - आज्ञा मानना, इताअत करना

needful - ज्ॅअरूरी

He touched a bell, and a page appeared, who was ordered to desire the presence of Sir William Herbert. This gentleman came straightway, and conducted Tom to an inner apartment. Tom’s first movement there was to reach for a cup of water; but a silk-and-velvet servitor seized it, dropped upon one knee, and offered it to him on a golden salver.

Next the tired captive sat down and was going to take off his buskins, timidly asking leave with his eye, but another silk-and-velvet discomforter went down upon his knees and took the office from him.

He made two or three further efforts to help himself, but being promptly forestalled each time, he finally gave up, with a sigh of resignation and a murmured "Beshrew me, but I marvel they do not require to breathe for me also!

" Slippered, and wrapped in a sumptuous robe, he laid himself down at last to rest, but not to sleep, for his head was too full of thoughts and the room too full of people.

evidently - स्पष्ट रूप से, स्पष्ट रूप से

frank - स्पष्टवादी, सरल

"Speak on-there is none to hear but me. Misgivings as to what?"

"I am full loth to word the thing that is in my mind, and thou so near to him in blood, my lord. But craving pardon if I do offend, seemeth it not strange that madness could so change his port and manner?-not but that his port and speech are princely still, but that they differ, in one unweighty trifle or another, from what his custom was aforetime.

craving - तृष्णा, उत्कट इच्छा, तमन्ना, ईप्सा, (crave)

offend - अपमान करना

madness - पागलपन

Seemeth it not strange that madness should filch from his memory his father’s very lineaments; the customs and observances that are his due from such as be about him; and, leaving him his Latin, strip him of his Greek and French? My lord, be not offended, but ease my mind of its disquiet and receive my grateful thanks. It haunteth me, his saying he was not the prince, and so-"

Dost not recall how that the old Baron Marley, being mad, forgot the favour of his own countenance that he had known for sixty years, and held it was another’s; nay, even claimed he was the son of Mary Magdalene, and that his head was made of Spanish glass; and, sooth to say, he suffered none to touch it, lest by mischance some heedless hand might shiver it?

dwell - विचार करना, निवास करना, पर देर तक बोलना

After some further talk, in which the Lord St. John covered up his mistake as well as he could by repeated protests that his faith was thoroughly grounded now, and could not be assailed by doubts again, the Lord Hertford relieved his fellow-keeper, and sat down to keep watch and ward alone. He was soon deep in meditation, and evidently the longer he thought, the more he was bothered.

"Tush, he must be the prince! Will any be in all the land maintain there can be two, not of one blood and birth, so marvellously twinned? And even were it so, ‘twere yet a stranger miracle that chance should cast the one into the other’s place. Nay, ‘tis folly, folly, folly!"

"Now were he impostor and called himself prince, look you that would be natural; that would be reasonable. But lived ever an impostor yet, who, being called prince by the king, prince by the court, prince by all, denied his dignity and pleaded against his exaltation? No! By the soul of St. Swithin, no!

Chapter VII. Tom’s first royal dinner.

Somewhat after one in the afternoon, Tom resignedly underwent the ordeal of being dressed for dinner.

nigh - लगभग, पास

priceless - अनमोल, अमूल्य, कमाल का, कमाल का

A chaplain said grace, and Tom was about to fall to, for hunger had long been constitutional with him, but was interrupted by my lord the Earl of Berkeley, who fastened a napkin about his neck; for the great post of Diaperers to the Prince of Wales was hereditary in this nobleman’s family. Tom’s cupbearer was present, and forestalled all his attempts to help himself to wine.

The Taster to his highness the Prince of Wales was there also, prepared to taste any suspicious dish upon requirement, and run the risk of being poisoned. He was only an ornamental appendage at this time, and was seldom called upon to exercise his function; but there had been times, not many generations past, when the office of taster had its perils, and was not a grandeur to be desired.

Why they did not use a dog or a plumber seems strange; but all the ways of royalty are strange. My Lord d’Arcy, First Groom of the Chamber, was there, to do goodness knows what; but there he was-let that suffice. The Lord Chief Butler was there, and stood behind Tom’s chair, overseeing the solemnities, under command of the Lord Great Steward and the Lord head cook, who stood near.

All those that were present had been well drilled within the hour to remember that the prince was temporarily out of his head, and to be careful to show no surprise at his vagaries. These ‘vagaries’ were soon on exhibition before them; but they only moved their compassion and their sorrow, not their mirth. It was a heavy affliction to them to see the beloved prince so stricken.

The Hereditary Diaperer took it away with reverent manner, and without word or protest of any sort.

Tom examined the turnips and the lettuce with interest, and asked what they were, and if they were to be eaten; for it was only recently that men had begun to raise these things in England in place of importing them as luxuries from Holland. {1} His question was answered with grave respect, and no surprise manifested.

lettuce - लेटिष, सलाद पत्ता

When he had finished his dessert, he filled his pockets with nuts; but nobody appeared to be aware of it, or disturbed by it. But the next moment he was himself disturbed by it, and showed discomposure; for this was the only service he had been permitted to do with his own hands during the meal, and he did not doubt that he had done a most improper and unprincely thing.

At that moment the muscles of his nose began to twitch, and the end of that organ to lift and wrinkle. This continued, and Tom began to evince a growing distress. He looked appealingly, first at one and then another of the lords about him, and tears came into his eyes. They sprang forward with dismay in their faces, and begged to know his trouble. Tom said with genuine anguish-

None smiled; but all were sore perplexed, and looked one to the other in deep tribulation for counsel. But behold, here was a dead wall, and nothing in English history to tell how to get over it. The Master of Ceremonies was not present: there was no one who felt safe to venture upon this uncharted sea, or risk the attempt to solve this solemn problem. Alas! there was no Hereditary Scratcher.

Meantime the tears had overflowed their banks, and begun to trickle down Tom’s cheeks. His twitching nose was pleading more urgently than ever for relief. At last nature broke down the barriers of etiquette: Tom lifted up an inward prayer for pardon if he was doing wrong, and brought relief to the burdened hearts of his court by scratching his nose himself.

His meal being ended, a lord came and held before him a broad, shallow, golden dish with fragrant rosewater in it, to cleanse his mouth and fingers with; and my lord the Hereditary Diaperer stood by with a napkin for his use.

By his own request our small friend was now conducted to his private cabinet, and left there alone to his own devices.

Tom put on the greaves, the gauntlets, the plumed helmet, and such other pieces as he could don without assistance, and for a while was minded to call for help and complete the matter, but bethought him of the nuts he had brought away from dinner, and the joy it would be to eat them with no crowd to eye him, and no Grand Hereditaries to pester him with undesired services; so he restored the pretty things to their several places, and soon was cracking nuts, and feeling almost naturally happy for the first time since God for his sins had made him a prince. When the nuts were all gone, he stumbled upon some inviting books in a closet, among them one about the etiquette of the English court. This was a prize.

About five o’clock Henry VIII. awoke out of an unrefreshing nap, and muttered to himself, "Troublous dreams, troublous dreams!

"Please your majesty, you did take it from me two days since, saying it should no more do its office till your own royal hand should use it upon the Duke of Norfolk’s warrant."

"True, most true!" interrupted the King. "Fetch it! Go: time flieth!"

Lord Hertford flew to Tom, but returned to the King before very long, troubled and empty-handed. He delivered himself to this effect-

"It grieveth me, my lord the King, to bear so heavy and unwelcome tidings; but it is the will of God that the prince’s affliction abideth still, and he cannot recall to mind that he received the Seal.

The Prince continued to struggle for freedom, and to rage against the treatment he was suffering, until John Canty lost what little patience was left in him, and raised his oaken cudgel in a sudden fury over the Prince’s head. The single pleader for the lad sprang to stop the man’s arm, and the blow descended upon his own wrist. Canty roared out-

Presently the Prince found himself in John Canty’s abode, with the door closed against the outsiders. By the vague light of a tallow candle which was thrust into a bottle, he made out the main features of the loathsome den, and also the occupants of it.

Two frowsy girls and a middle-aged woman cowered against the wall in one corner, with the aspect of animals habituated to harsh usage, and expecting and dreading it now. From another corner stole a withered hag with streaming grey hair and malignant eyes. John Canty said to this one-

"‘Tis but ill-breeding in such as thou to command me to speak. I tell thee now, as I told thee before, I am Edward, Prince of Wales, and none other."

The stunning surprise of this reply nailed the hag’s feet to the floor where she stood, and almost took her breath. She stared at the Prince in stupid amazement, which so amused her ruffianly son, that he burst into a roar of laughter. But the effect upon Tom Canty’s mother and sisters was different. Their dread of bodily injury gave way at once to distress of a different sort.

The mother fell on her knees before the Prince, put her hands upon his shoulders, and gazed yearningly into his face through her rising tears. Then she said-

Dame - स्त्री, छोकरी, मूक नाट्य में हास्य नारी चरित्र

"The King thy father! Oh, my child! unsay these words that be freighted with death for thee, and ruin for all that be near to thee. Shake of this gruesome dream. call back thy poor wandering memory. Look upon me. Am not I thy mother that bore thee, and loveth thee?"

He followed this with another horse-laugh. The girls began to plead timidly for their brother; and Nan said-

"An thou wilt but let him to bed, father, rest and sleep will heal his madness: prithee, do."

"Do, father," said Bet; "he is more worn than is his wont. To-morrow will he be himself again, and will beg with diligence, and come not empty home again."

This remark sobered the father’s joviality, and brought his mind to business. He turned angrily upon the Prince, and said-

The Prince said-

"Offend me not with thy sordid matters. I tell thee again I am the King’s son."

A sounding blow upon the Prince’s shoulder from Canty’s broad palm sent him staggering into goodwife Canty’s arms, who clasped him to her breast, and sheltered him from a pelting rain of cuffs and slaps by interposing her own person. The frightened girls retreated to their corner; but the grandmother stepped eagerly forward to assist her son. The Prince sprang away from Mrs. Canty, exclaiming-

"Thou shalt not suffer for me, madam. Let these swine do their will upon me alone."

set about - शुरू करना

sympathy - संवेदना, सहमति, सहानुभूति, समर्थन, हमदर्दी, मेल

"Now," said Canty, "to bed, all of ye. The entertainment has tired me."

The light was put out, and the family retired. As soon as the snorings of the head of the house and his mother showed that they were asleep, the young girls crept to where the Prince lay, and covered him tenderly from the cold with straw and rags; and their mother crept to him also, and stroked his hair, and cried over him, whispering broken words of comfort and compassion in his ear the while.

She had saved a morsel for him to eat, also; but the boy’s pains had swept away all appetite-at least for black and tasteless crusts. He was touched by her brave and costly defence of him, and by her commiseration; and he thanked her in very noble and princely words, and begged her to go to her sleep and try to forget her sorrows.

And he added that the King his father would not let her loyal kindness and devotion go unrewarded. This return to his ‘madness’ broke her heart anew, and she strained him to her breast again and again, and then went back, drowned in tears, to her bed.

anew - नये सिरे से, नये प्रकार से

As she lay thinking and mourning, the suggestion began to creep into her mind that there was an undefinable something about this boy that was lacking in Tom Canty, mad or sane. She could not describe it, she could not tell just what it was, and yet her sharp mother-instinct seemed to detect it and perceive it. What if the boy were really not her son, after all? Oh, absurd!

At last she perceived that there was not going to be any peace for her until she should devise a test that should prove, clearly and without question, whether this lad was her son or not, and so banish these wearing and worrying doubts. Ah, yes, this was plainly the right way out of the difficulty; therefore she set her wits to work at once to contrive that test.

But it was an easier thing to propose than to accomplish. She turned over in her mind one promising test after another, but was obliged to relinquish them all-none of them were absolutely sure, absolutely perfect; and an imperfect one could not satisfy her. Evidently she was racking her head in vain-it seemed manifest that she must give the matter up.

While this depressing thought was passing through her mind, her ear caught the regular breathing of the boy, and she knew he had fallen asleep. And while she listened, the measured breathing was broken by a soft, startled cry, such as one utters in a troubled dream. This chance occurrence furnished her instantly with a plan worth all her laboured tests combined.

By this time she had crept to the slumbering boy’s side, with the candle, shaded, in her hand. She bent heedfully and warily over him, scarcely breathing in her suppressed excitement, and suddenly flashed the light in his face and struck the floor by his ear with her knuckles.

The poor woman was smitten almost helpless with surprise and grief; but she contrived to hide her emotions, and to soothe the boy to sleep again; then she crept apart and communed miserably with herself upon the disastrous result of her experiment.

unlearn - भुला देना, दिमाग से निकाल देना, भुला देना

Still, hope was as stubborn now as doubt had been before; she could not bring herself to accept the verdict of the test; she must try the thing again-the failure must have been only an accident; so she startled the boy out of his sleep a second and a third time, at intervals-with the same result which had marked the first test; then she dragged herself to bed, and fell sorrowfully asleep, saying, "But I cannot give him up-oh no, I cannot, I cannot-he must be my boy!"

The poor mother’s interruptions having ceased, and the Prince’s pains having gradually lost their power to disturb him, utter weariness at last sealed his eyes in a profound and restful sleep. Hour after hour slipped away, and still he slept like the dead. Thus four or five hours passed. Then his stupor began to lighten. Presently, while half asleep and half awake, he murmured-

After a moment-

"Ho, Sir William Herbert! Hie thee hither, and list to the strangest dream that ever . . . Sir William! dost hear? Man, I did think me changed to a pauper, and . . . Ho there! Guards! Sir William! What! is there no groom of the chamber in waiting? Alack! it shall go hard with-"

"What aileth thee?" asked a whisper near him. "Who art thou calling?"

"Sir William Herbert. Who art thou?"

"I? Who should I be, but thy sister Nan? Oh, Tom, I had forgot! Thou’rt mad yet-poor lad, thou’rt mad yet: would I had never woke to know it again! But prithee master thy tongue, lest we be all beaten till we die!"

"Alas! it was no dream, then!"

In a moment all the heavy sorrow and misery which sleep had banished were upon him again, and he realised that he was no longer a petted prince in a palace, with the adoring eyes of a nation upon him, but a pauper, an outcast, clothed in rags, prisoner in a den fit only for beasts, and consorting with beggars and thieves.

There was a line of bonfires stretching as far as one could see, up and down the Thames; London Bridge was illuminated; Southwark Bridge likewise; the entire river was aglow with the flash and sheen of coloured lights; and constant explosions of fireworks filled the skies with an intricate commingling of shooting splendours and a thick rain of dazzling sparks that almost turned night into day; everywhere were crowds of revellers; all London seemed to be at large.

John Canty delivered himself of a furious curse and commanded a retreat; but it was too late. He and his tribe were swallowed up in that swarming hive of humanity, and hopelessly separated from each other in an instant. We are not considering that the Prince was one of his tribe; Canty still kept his grip upon him. The Prince’s heart was beating high with hopes of escape, now.

A burly waterman, considerably exalted with liquor, found himself rudely shoved by Canty in his efforts to plough through the crowd; he laid his great hand on Canty’s shoulder and said-

humour - हास्य, शक्तिअ, हास्यकला, सन्तुष्ट रखना, हास्यवृत्ति

"Give me the cup, then, and make speed, make speed!"

Other revellers were interested by this time. They cried out-

sour - खट्टा

knave - दुष्ट, धूर्त, बेईमान, गुलाम, पाजी, धोखेबाज़, शठ, दोग़ला

So a huge loving-cup was brought; the waterman, grasping it by one of its handles, and with the other hand bearing up the end of an imaginary napkin, presented it in due and ancient form to Canty, who had to grasp the opposite handle with one of his hands and take off the lid with the other, according to ancient custom. This left the Prince hand-free for a second, of course.

He very soon realised this fact, and straightway busied himself about his own affairs without further thought of John Canty. He quickly realised another thing, too. To wit, that a spurious Prince of Wales was being feasted by the city in his stead.

Therefore there was but one course to pursue-find his way to the Guildhall, make himself known, and denounce the impostor. He also made up his mind that Tom should be allowed a reasonable time for spiritual preparation, and then be hanged, drawn and quartered, according to the law and usage of the day in cases of high treason.

The air was laden with music; the river banks were beruffled with joy-flames; the distant city lay in a soft luminous glow from its countless invisible bonfires; above it rose many a slender spire into the sky, incrusted with sparkling lights, wherefore in their remoteness they seemed like jewelled lances thrust aloft; as the fleet swept along, it was greeted from the banks with a continuous hoarse roar of cheers and the ceaseless flash and boom of artillery.

His doublet and trunks were of rich material, but faded and threadbare, and their gold-lace adornments were sadly tarnished; his ruff was rumpled and damaged; the plume in his slouched hat was broken and had a bedraggled and disreputable look; at his side he wore a long rapier in a rusty iron sheath; his swaggering carriage marked him at once as a ruffler of the camp.

"Long live the King!"

Poor Tom’s dazed eyes wandered abroad over this stupefying spectacle, and finally rested dreamily upon the kneeling princesses beside him, a moment, then upon the Earl of Hertford. A sudden purpose dawned in his face. He said, in a low tone, at Lord Hertford’s ear-

The words were caught up and carried eagerly from lip to lip far and wide over the hall, and as Hertford hurried from the presence, another prodigious shout burst forth-

lip - tहोंठ, लब

"The reign of blood is ended! Long live Edward, King of England!"

Chapter XII. The Prince and his Deliverer.

As soon as Miles Hendon and the little prince were clear of the mob, they struck down through back lanes and alleys toward the river.

The tremendous news was already abroad, and the boy learned it from a thousand voices at once-"The King is dead!" The tidings struck a chill to the heart of the poor little waif, and sent a shudder through his frame.

Our friends threaded their way slowly through the throngs upon the bridge.

The Bridge was a sort of town to itself; it had its inn, its beer-houses, its bakeries, its haberdasheries, its food markets, its manufacturing industries, and even its church.

intimately - परिचित रूप से

conceited - घमण्ड, हास्योक्ति, गुमान

reared - पीछे का भाग, उठाना, पिछला, ऊपर उठाना, पालना, चूतड़

Such people would naturally imagine that the mighty and interminable procession which moved through its street night and day, with its confused roar of shouts and cries, its neighings and bellowing and bleatings and its muffled thunder-tramp, was the one great thing in this world, and themselves somehow the proprietors of it.

And so they were, in effect-at least they could exhibit it from their windows, and did-for a consideration-whenever a returning king or hero gave it a fleeting splendour, for there was no place like it for affording a long, straight, uninterrupted view of marching columns.

Men born and reared upon the Bridge found life unendurably dull and inane elsewhere. History tells of one of these who left the Bridge at the age of seventy-one and retired to the country.

"So, thou’rt come at last! Thou’lt not escape again, I warrant thee; and if pounding thy bones to a pudding can teach thee somewhat, thou’lt not keep us waiting another time, mayhap,"-and John Canty put out his hand to seize the boy.

seize - समझना, झपट लेना, पकड़ना, हासिल करना, कुर्क करना, छीन लेना

"Boldly said, and I believe thee, whether thy small headpiece be sound or cracked, my boy. But whether this scurvy ruffian be thy father or no, ‘tis all one, he shall not have thee to beat thee and abuse, according to his threat, so thou prefer to bide with me."

"Then ‘tis settled, and there is nought more to say."

"If thou do but touch him, thou animated offal, I will spit thee like a goose!" said Hendon, barring the way and laying his hand upon his sword hilt. Canty drew back.

-for whether thou art his father or no-and sooth to say, I think it is a lie-a decent swift death were better for such a lad than life in such brute hands as thine. So go thy ways, and set quick about it, for I like not much bandying of words, being not over-patient in my nature."

John Canty moved off, muttering threats and curses, and was swallowed from sight in the crowd. Hendon ascended three flights of stairs to his room, with his charge, after ordering a meal to be sent thither. It was a poor apartment, with a shabby bed and some odds and ends of old furniture in it, and was vaguely lighted by a couple of sickly candles.

The little King dragged himself to the bed and lay down upon it, almost exhausted with hunger and fatigue. He had been on his feet a good part of a day and a night (for it was now two or three o’clock in the morning), and had eaten nothing meantime. He murmured drowsily-

"By the mass, the little beggar takes to one’s quarters and usurps one’s bed with as natural and easy a grace as if he owned them-with never a by-your-leave or so-please-it-you, or anything of the sort. In his diseased ravings he called himself the Prince of Wales, and bravely doth he keep up the character. Poor little friendless rat, doubtless his mind has been disordered with ill-usage.

cure - बेहतर करना

shame - लज्जा

shroud - कफन

He bent over the boy and contemplated him with kind and pitying interest, tapping the young cheek tenderly and smoothing back the tangled curls with his great brown hand. A slight shiver passed over the boy’s form. Hendon muttered-

He looked about for extra covering, but finding none, doffed his doublet and wrapped the lad in it, saying, "I am used to nipping air and scant apparel, ‘tis little I shall mind the cold!"-then walked up and down the room, to keep his blood in motion, soliloquising as before.

nipping - चुटकी, जल्दी करना, काटना, चिकोटी काटना, चुभन, चरपरापन

apparel - औपचारिक पोशाक

soliloquising - स्वगत भाषण करना

"His injured mind persuades him he is Prince of Wales; ‘twill be odd to have a Prince of Wales still with us, now that he that was the prince is prince no more, but king-for this poor mind is set upon the one fantasy, and will not reason out that now it should cast by the prince and call itself the king. . .

injured - घायल, नुकसान पहुच्ना, ज़ख़्मी करना, आहत, घायल करना

persuades - विश्वास दिलाना, मनाना, समझाना, के लिए राजी करना

If my father liveth still, after these seven years that I have heard nought from home in my foreign dungeon, he will welcome the poor lad and give him generous shelter for my sake; so will my good elder brother, Arthur; my other brother, Hugh-but I will crack his crown an he interfere, the fox-hearted, ill-conditioned animal!

disposed - सजाना, ठीक रखना, ठिकाने लगाना

wait upon - पेशे करना

The door slammed after him, and the noise woke the boy, who sprang to a sitting posture, and shot a glad glance about him; then a grieved look came into his face and he murmured to himself, with a deep sigh, "Alack, it was but a dream, woe is me!" Next he noticed Miles Hendon’s doublet-glanced from that to Hendon, comprehended the sacrifice that had been made for him, and said, gently-

slammed - ज़ोर से बंद हो जाना, ज़ोर से बंद करना, धम्म से बंद करना

grieved - शोका मनाना, दुःखित होना, रंज करना, दुःखएना, दुःखित होना

comprehended - समझना, समाविष्ट करना, समाविष्ट करना

"Thou art good to me, yes, thou art very good to me. Take it and put it on-I shall not need it more."

Then he got up and walked to the washstand in the corner and stood there, waiting. Hendon said in a cheery voice-

washstand - मुंह हाथ धोने की मेज़, वाश स्टैण्ड

cheery - हर्षित

"We’ll have a right hearty sup and bite, now, for everything is savoury and smoking hot, and that and thy nap together will make thee a little man again, never fear!"

sup - घूँट, थोड़ा थोड़ा करके पीना, सुड़कना

bite - काटना, डसना

savoury - स्वादिष्ट, रुचिकर, नैतिक दृष्टि से उचित, चटपटा

The boy made no answer, but bent a steady look, that was filled with grave surprise, and also somewhat touched with impatience, upon the tall knight of the sword. Hendon was puzzled, and said-

Impatience - अधैर्यता, अधीरता, असहिष्णुता

"What’s amiss?"

amiss - गलत, गड़बड़

"Good sir, I would wash me."

"Oh, is that all? Ask no permission of Miles Hendon for aught thou cravest. Make thyself perfectly free here, and welcome, with all that are his belongings."

aught - कुछ भी, कुछ नहीं

perfectly - सितारा मछली, पूर्णतः, अच्छी तरह से, पूर्ण रूप से

belongings - सम्पत्ति, माल असबाब

Still the boy stood, and moved not; more, he tapped the floor once or twice with his small impatient foot. Hendon was wholly perplexed. Said he-

tapped - खटखटाना, निकालना, क्षार निकालना, थपथपाना, बाहर निकलना, नल

impatient - उतसुक, बेचैन, उत्सुक, उतावला, अधैर्य, अधीर, आतुर

"Bless us, what is it?"

"Prithee pour the water, and make not so many words!"

pour - बहना

Hendon, suppressing a horse-laugh, and saying to himself, "By all the saints, but this is admirable!" stepped briskly forward and did the small insolent’s bidding; then stood by, in a sort of stupefaction, until the command, "Come-the towel!" woke him sharply up. He took up a towel, from under the boy’s nose, and handed it to him without comment.

sharply - कटुतापूर्वक, तीक्ष्णता से, तेजी से

He now proceeded to comfort his own face with a wash, and while he was at it his adopted child seated himself at the table and prepared to fall to. Hendon despatched his ablutions with alacrity, then drew back the other chair and was about to place himself at table, when the boy said, indignantly-

ablutions - प्रक्षालन, अपमार्जन, अपमार्जन जल, प्रक्षालन जल

indignantly - रोषपूर्वक, क्रोध से

"Forbear! Wouldst sit in the presence of the King?"

forbear - पूर्वज, अपने आप को रोक पाना, अपने आप को रोक पाना, बाज़ आना

This blow staggered Hendon to his foundations. He muttered to himself, "Lo, the poor thing’s madness is up with the time! It hath changed with the great change that is come to the realm, and now in fancy is he king! Good lack, I must humour the conceit, too-there is no other way-faith, he would order me to the Tower, else!"

foundations - आधार, प्रतिष्ठान, संस्था, बुनियाद, नींव, स्थापना, मूल सिद्धांत

And pleased with this jest, he removed the chair from the table, took his stand behind the King, and proceeded to wait upon him in the courtliest way he was capable of.

courtliest - सभ्य, सुसभ्य

capable - सक्षम

While the King ate, the rigour of his royal dignity relaxed a little, and with his growing contentment came a desire to talk. He said-"I think thou callest thyself Miles Hendon, if I heard thee aright?"

rigour - कठोरता, कठिनाई, सावधानी, कड़ाई

royal dignity - राजकीय गर्व

contentment - संतुष्टि, सन्तोष

"Yes, Sire," Miles replied; then observed to himself, "If I must humour the poor lad’s madness, I must ‘Sire’ him, I must ‘Majesty’ him, I must not go by halves, I must stick at nothing that belongeth to the part I play, else shall I play it ill and work evil to this charitable and kindly cause."

charitable - उदार, परोपकारी, दानशील

The King warmed his heart with a second glass of wine, and said-"I would know thee-tell me thy story. Thou hast a gallant way with thee, and a noble-art nobly born?"

nobly - उदारता के साथ, उदारता के साथ

"We are of the tail of the nobility, good your Majesty. My father is a baronet-one of the smaller lords by knight service {2}-Sir Richard Hendon of Hendon Hall, by Monk’s Holm in Kent."

"The name has escaped my memory. Go on-tell me thy story."

"‘Tis not much, your Majesty, yet perchance it may beguile a short half-hour for want of a better. My father, Sir Richard, is very rich, and of a most generous nature. My mother died whilst I was yet a boy. I have two brothers: Arthur, my elder, with a soul like to his father’s; and Hugh, younger than I, a mean spirit, covetous, treacherous, vicious, underhanded-a reptile.

Such was he from the cradle; such was he ten years past, when I last saw him-a ripe rascal at nineteen, I being twenty then, and Arthur twenty-two. There is none other of us but the Lady Edith, my cousin-she was sixteen then-beautiful, gentle, good, the daughter of an earl, the last of her race, heiress of a great fortune and a lapsed title. My father was her guardian.

I loved her and she loved me; but she was betrothed to Arthur from the cradle, and Sir Richard would not suffer the contract to be broken.

betrothed - मंगेतर, (betroth) मंगेतर

contract - सिकुड़ना

maid - लड़की

bade - बेड

Hugh loved the Lady Edith’s fortune, though in truth he said it was herself he loved-but then ‘twas his way, alway, to say the one thing and mean the other. But he lost his arts upon the girl; he could deceive my father, but none else.

alway - हमेशा

deceive - धोखा देना

My father loved him best of us all, and trusted and believed him; for he was the youngest child, and others hated him-these qualities being in all ages sufficient to win a parent’s dearest love; and he had a smooth persuasive tongue, with an admirable gift of lying-and these be qualities which do mightily assist a blind affection to cozen itself.

trusted - आशा करना, सहारा, ईमानदारी से, न्यास, भरोसा करना, भरोस करना

smooth - चिकना

persuasive - प्रभावपूर्ण, प्रत्ययकारी

mightily - बहुत अधिक, बहुत प्रयत्नपूर्वक

affection - स्नेह, प्यार

I was wild-in troth I might go yet farther and say very wild, though ‘twas a wildness of an innocent sort, since it hurt none but me, brought shame to none, nor loss, nor had in it any taint of crime or baseness, or what might not beseem mine honourable degree.

troth - oath, pledge or promise, pledge or promise to marry someone

wildness - वहशत

innocent - निर्दोष

baseness - कमजोरी

beseem - शोभना

honourable - माननीय, माननीय/सम्माननीय

"Yet did my brother Hugh turn these faults to good account-he seeing that our brother Arthur’s health was but indifferent, and hoping the worst might work him profit were I swept out of the path-so-but ‘twere a long tale, good my liege, and little worth the telling.

account - खाता

indifferent - घटिया, तुच्छ, साधारण, उदासीन, मामूली, तटस्थ, अपक्षपाती, अव्यग्र

profit - लाभ, फ़ायदा

path - मार्ग

Briefly, then, this brother did deftly magnify my faults and make them crimes; ending his base work with finding a silken ladder in mine apartments-conveyed thither by his own means-and did convince my father by this, and suborned evidence of servants and other lying knaves, that I was minded to carry off my Edith and marry with her in rank defiance of his will.

banishment - निर्वासन

Through wit and courage I won to the free air at last, and fled hither straight; and am but just arrived, right poor in purse and raiment, and poorer still in knowledge of what these dull seven years have wrought at Hendon Hall, its people and belongings.

loosed - भुरभुरी, छोड़ना, निर्बध, कमजोर, ढीला पड़ना, असंहत, कामुक, खोलना

misfortunes - दुर्भाग्य, बदकिस्मती, अवदशा

"Lo, what an imagination he hath! Verily, this is no common mind; else, crazed or sane, it could not weave so straight and gaudy a tale as this out of the airy nothings wherewith it hath wrought this curious romaunt. Poor ruined little head, it shall not lack friend or shelter whilst I bide with the living. He shall never leave my side; he shall be my pet, my little comrade.

"Thou didst save me injury and shame, perchance my life, and so my crown. Such service demandeth rich reward. Name thy desire, and so it be within the compass of my royal power, it is thine."

compass - कम्पास, कुतुबनुमा

This fantastic suggestion startled Hendon out of his reverie.

reverie - दिवास्वप्न

He was about to thank the King and put the matter aside with saying he had only done his duty and desired no reward, but a wiser thought came into his head, and he asked leave to be silent a few moments and consider the gracious offer-an idea which the King gravely approved, remarking that it was best to be not too hasty with a thing of such great import.

Miles reflected during some moments, then said to himself, "Yes, that is the thing to do-by any other means it were impossible to get at it-and certes, this hour’s experience has taught me ‘twould be most wearing and inconvenient to continue it as it is. Yes, I will propose it; ‘twas a happy accident that I did not throw the chance away." Then he dropped upon one knee and said-

reflected - विचार करना, दर्शाना, प्रतिबिंबित करना, परावर्तित करना

inconvenient - असुविधाजनक, असुविधापूर्ण

"My poor service went not beyond the limit of a subject’s simple duty, and therefore hath no merit; but since your Majesty is pleased to hold it worthy some reward, I take heart of grace to make petition to this effect.

merit - क़द्र

take heart - हृदय लें

Near four hundred years ago, as your grace knoweth, there being ill blood betwixt John, King of England, and the King of France, it was decreed that two champions should fight together in the lists, and so settle the dispute by what is called the arbitrament of God.

These two kings, and the Spanish king, being assembled to witness and judge the conflict, the French champion appeared; but so redoubtable was he, that our English knights refused to measure weapons with him. So the matter, which was a weighty one, was like to go against the English monarch by default.

Now in the Tower lay the Lord de Courcy, the mightiest arm in England, stripped of his honours and possessions, and wasting with long captivity. Appeal was made to him; he gave assent, and came forth arrayed for battle; but no sooner did the Frenchman glimpse his huge frame and hear his famous name but he fled away, and the French king’s cause was lost.

King John restored De Courcy’s titles and possessions, and said, ‘Name thy wish and thou shalt have it, though it cost me half my kingdom;’ whereat De Courcy, kneeling, as I do now, made answer, ‘This, then, I ask, my liege; that I and my successors may have and hold the privilege of remaining covered in the presence of the kings of England, henceforth while the throne shall last.

whereat - at which, or toward which

successors - उत्तराधिकारी, वारिस

’ The boon was granted, as your Majesty knoweth; and there hath been no time, these four hundred years, that that line has failed of an heir; and so, even unto this day, the head of that ancient house still weareth his hat or helm before the King’s Majesty, without let or hindrance, and this none other may do.

boon - वरदान

granted - स्वीकार करना, देना, अनुदान, अधिकार देना, अनुमति देना

accolade - पुरस्कार, आलिंगन, शाबाशी, सम्मान, सराहना

His Majesty walked apart, musing, and Hendon dropped into a chair at table, observing to himself, "‘Twas a brave thought, and hath wrought me a mighty deliverance; my legs are grievously wearied. An I had not thought of that, I must have had to stand for weeks, till my poor lad’s wits are cured." After a little, he went on, "And so I am become a knight of the Kingdom of Dreams and Shadows!

cured - दूर करना, पादरी, ठीक करना, मिलाना, सुरक्षित रखना, आराम

shadows - सितारा मछली, सूट्र, शरण, झलक, संकेत, परछाई, भूत, बोध

A most odd and strange position, truly, for one so matter-of-fact as I. I will not laugh-no, God forbid, for this thing which is so substanceless to me is real to him. And to me, also, in one way, it is not a falsity, for it reflects with truth the sweet and generous spirit that is in him." After a pause: "Ah, what if he should call me by my fine title before folk!

substanceless - अवर्णनित

falsity - झूठ, असत्यता

reflects - विचार करना, दर्शाना, प्रतिबिंबित करना, परावर्तित करना

Chapter XIII. The disappearance of the Prince.

disappearance - ओझल

A heavy drowsiness presently fell upon the two comrades. The King said-

drowsiness - झूम

"Remove these rags."-meaning his clothing.

Hendon disapparelled the boy without dissent or remark, tucked him up in bed, then glanced about the room, saying to himself, ruefully, "He hath taken my bed again, as before-marry, what shall I do?" The little King observed his perplexity, and dissipated it with a word. He said, sleepily-

"Dear heart, he should have been born a king!" muttered Hendon, admiringly; "he playeth the part to a marvel."

Then he stretched himself across the door, on the floor, saying contentedly-

He dropped asleep as the dawn appeared. Toward noon he rose, uncovered his unconscious ward-a section at a time-and took his measure with a string. The King awoke, just as he had completed his work, complained of the cold, and asked what he was doing.

dawn - उषा, ऊषा, प्रभात, तड़का

noon - मध्याह्न

string - तार

"‘Tis done, now, my liege," said Hendon; "I have a bit of business outside, but will presently return; sleep thou again-thou needest it. There-let me cover thy head also-thou’lt be warm the sooner."

The King was back in dreamland before this speech was ended. Miles slipped softly out, and slipped as softly in again, in the course of thirty or forty minutes, with a complete second-hand suit of boy’s clothing, of cheap material, and showing signs of wear; but tidy, and suited to the season of the year. He seated himself, and began to overhaul his purchase, mumbling to himself-

second-hand - (second-hand) दूसरे हाथ

overhaul - पूरी जाँच करके मरम्मत करना, निरीक्षण, निरीक्षण करना

purchase - खरीद, खरीदी हुई बस्तु, खरीदी हुई बस्तु, पकड, ख़रीदना

"‘There was a woman in our town,

In our town did dwell-’

"He stirred, methinks-I must sing in a less thunderous key; ‘tis not good to mar his sleep, with this journey before him, and he so wearied out, poor chap . . . This garment-‘tis well enough-a stitch here and another one there will set it aright. This other is better, albeit a stitch or two will not come amiss in it, likewise . . .

thunderous - कानफोड़ू

chap - लड़का

stitch - टांका, तोपा

These be very good and sound, and will keep his small feet warm and dry-an odd new thing to him, belike, since he has doubtless been used to foot it bare, winters and summers the same . . . Would thread were bread, seeing one getteth a year’s sufficiency for a farthing, and such a brave big needle without cost, for mere love. Now shall I have the demon’s own time to thread it!"

thread - धागा, सूत, सूत्र, तंत

sufficiency - योग्यता, सामर्थ्य, पर्याप्तता

needle - सुई

demon - दानव, दैत्य, देव, शैतान

And so he had. He did as men have always done, and probably always will do, to the end of time-held the needle still, and tried to thrust the thread through the eye, which is the opposite of a woman’s way.

Time and time again the thread missed the mark, going sometimes on one side of the needle, sometimes on the other, sometimes doubling up against the shaft; but he was patient, having been through these experiences before, when he was soldiering. He succeeded at last, and took up the garment that had lain waiting, meantime, across his lap, and began his work.

lap - चपड़-पचड़ पीना, गटागट पी जाना

convenience - सुविधा

vanish - ओझल हो जाना, समाप्त हो जाना, लुप्त होना, समाप्त हो जाना

"‘She loved her husband dearilee,

Now will I wake him, apparel him, pour for him, feed him, and then will we hie us to the mart by the Tabard Inn in Southwark and-be pleased to rise, my liege!-he answereth not-what ho, my liege!-of a truth must I profane his sacred person with a touch, sith his slumber is deaf to speech.

He threw back the covers-the boy was gone!

speechless - मूक, गूंगा, अवाक्, वांगमय

astonishment - आश्चर्य, अचरज

innkeeper - सराय वाला, सराय वाला

limb - अंग

"You were hardly gone from the place, your worship, when a youth came running and said it was your worship’s will that the boy come to you straight, at the bridge-end on the Southwark side.

I brought him hither; and when he woke the lad and gave his message, the lad did grumble some little for being disturbed ‘so early,’ as he called it, but straightway trussed on his rags and went with the youth, only saying it had been better manners that your worship came yourself, not sent a stranger-and so-"

"All alone, your worship."

"Art sure?"

"Sure, your worship."

"Collect thy scattered wits-bethink thee-take time, man."

After a moment’s thought, the servant said-

"When he came, none came with him; but now I remember me that as the two stepped into the throng of the Bridge, a ruffian-looking man plunged out from some near place; and just as he was joining them-"

plunged - उछाल आना, फँसाना, प्रवेश करना, घुसेड़ना, डुबकी, डूबना, गोता

whit - कण, लेशमात्र

more blameless - अति न्यायपूर्ण

"Art here yet! And prating still! Vanish, lest I throttle thee!" The servitor vanished. Hendon followed after him, passed him, and plunged down the stairs two steps at a stride, muttering, "‘Tis that scurvy villain that claimed he was his son. I have lost thee, my poor little mad master-it is a bitter thought-and I had come to love thee so! No! by book and bell, not lost!

throttle - नलीवाल्व

stride - लम्बे डग मारना, एक कदम में पार करना, टांगे फैलाकर बैठना

" As he wormed his swift way through the noisy multitudes upon the Bridge he several times said to himself-clinging to the thought as if it were a particularly pleasing one-"He grumbled, but he went-he went, yes, because he thought Miles Hendon asked it, sweet lad-he would ne’er have done it for another, I know it well."

est - Eastern Standard Time, English subtitles

mort - मौत

vive - जियो

Toward daylight of the same morning, Tom Canty stirred out of a heavy sleep and opened his eyes in the dark. He lay silent a few moments, trying to analyse his confused thoughts and impressions, and get some sort of meaning out of them; then suddenly he burst out in a rapturous but guarded voice-

"Wilt deign to deliver thy commands?"

deliver - पहुंचाना

"Commands? . . . O, woe is me, I know thy voice! Speak thou-who am I?"

"Thou? In sooth, yesternight wert thou the Prince of Wales; to-day art thou my most gracious liege, Edward, King of England."

yesternight - कल रात

Tom buried his head among his pillows, murmuring plaintively-

plaintively - दुख के साथ, दुख के साथ, विषादपूर्ण ढंग से, दुखी हो कर

"Alack, it was no dream! Go to thy rest, sweet sir-leave me to my sorrows."

Tom slept again, and after a time he had this pleasant dream. He thought it was summer, and he was playing, all alone, in the fair meadow called Goodman’s Fields, when a dwarf only a foot high, with long red whiskers and a humped back, appeared to him suddenly and said, "Dig by that stump." He did so, and found twelve bright new pennies-wonderful riches!

Yet this was not the best of it; for the dwarf said-

"I know thee. Thou art a good lad, and a deserving; thy distresses shall end, for the day of thy reward is come. Dig here every seventh day, and thou shalt find always the same treasure, twelve bright new pennies. Tell none-keep the secret."

deserving - योग्य, लायक, (deserve) योग्य

distresses - दुःख होना, कठिनाई, दुःख होना, विपत्तिजनक स्थिति

Then the dwarf vanished, and Tom flew to Offal Court with his prize, saying to himself, "Every night will I give my father a penny; he will think I begged it, it will glad his heart, and I shall no more be beaten. One penny every week the good priest that teacheth me shall have; mother, Nan, and Bet the other four. We be done with hunger and rags, now, done with fears and frets and savage usage."

frets - चिंता करना, चिंता करना, चिन्ता प्रकट करना

In his dream he reached his sordid home all out of breath, but with eyes dancing with grateful enthusiasm; cast four of his pennies into his mother’s lap and cried out-

enthusiasm - जोश, उत्साह

"They are for thee!-all of them, every one!-for thee and Nan and Bet-and honestly come by, not begged nor stolen!"

honestly - ईमानदारी से

The happy and astonished mother strained him to her breast and exclaimed-

"It waxeth late-may it please your Majesty to rise?"

Ah! that was not the answer he was expecting. The dream had snapped asunder-he was awake.

snapped - प्रेस बटन, टूटना, काट लेना, गुर्राना, तात्कालिक/फ़ौरी/आसु

asunder - टुकड़े टुकड़े

He opened his eyes-the richly clad First Lord of the Bedchamber was kneeling by his couch. The gladness of the lying dream faded away-the poor boy recognised that he was still a captive and a king. The room was filled with courtiers clothed in purple mantles-the mourning colour-and with noble servants of the monarch.

bedchamber - शयनकक्ष

gladness - आनन्द, हर्ष, आनंद, प्रसन्नता, happiness

Tom sat up in bed and gazed out from the heavy silken curtains upon this fine company.

curtains - बाधा, नाटक, पर्दा, मृत्यु, यवनिका, आवरण, समय, पर्दे से ढँकना

The weighty business of dressing began, and one courtier after another knelt and paid his court and offered to the little King his condolences upon his heavy loss, whilst the dressing proceeded.

condolences - सहानुभूति, सहानुभूति/दूसरों के दुख पर शोक प्रकट करना, श्रदांजली

In the beginning, a shirt was taken up by the Chief Equerry in Waiting, who passed it to the First Lord of the Buckhounds, who passed it to the Second Gentleman of the Bedchamber, who passed it to the Head Ranger of Windsor Forest, who passed it to the Third Groom of the Stole, who passed it to the Chancellor Royal of the Duchy of Lancaster, who passed it to the Master of the Wardrobe, who passed it to Norroy King-at-Arms, who passed it to the Constable of the Tower, who passed it to the Chief Steward of the Household, who passed it to the Hereditary Grand Diaperer, who passed it to the Lord High Admiral of England, who passed it to the Archbishop of Canterbury, who passed it to the First Lord of the Bedchamber, who took what was left of it and put it on Tom. Poor little wondering chap, it reminded him of passing buckets at a fire.

buckets - बाल्टी, खाना, तेज़ी से खेना, निपटाना, बालटी में ले जाना

Each garment in its turn had to go through this slow and solemn process; consequently Tom grew very weary of the ceremony; so weary that he felt an almost gushing gratefulness when he at last saw his long silken hose begin the journey down the line and knew that the end of the matter was drawing near. But he exulted too soon.

consequently - परिणामस्वरूप, इसके परिणाम स्वरूप, अतः/इसलिये

exulted - उल्लसित होना, बहुत प्रसन्न होना, उल्लसित होना

The First Lord of the Bedchamber received the hose and was about to encase Tom’s legs in them, when a sudden flush invaded his face and he hurriedly hustled the things back into the hands of the Archbishop of Canterbury with an astounded look and a whispered, "See, my lord!" pointing to a something connected with the hose.

encase - डिब्बे मे रखना, ढाँकना

invaded - आक्रमण करना, चढाई करना, घुस जाना, में दखल देना

astounded - चकित करना, अचंभित करना

The Archbishop paled, then flushed, and passed the hose to the Lord High Admiral, whispering, "See, my lord!" The Admiral passed the hose to the Hereditary Grand Diaperer, and had hardly breath enough in his body to ejaculate, "See, my lord!

paled - बाल्टी, मुरझाया, घेरना, पीला, सीमा, म्लान, कुम्हलाया

ejaculate - to eject abruptly, to say abruptly

" The hose drifted backward along the line, to the Chief Steward of the Household, the Constable of the Tower, Norroy King-at-Arms, the Master of the Wardrobe, the Chancellor Royal of the Duchy of Lancaster, the Third Groom of the Stole, the Head Ranger of Windsor Forest, the Second Gentleman of the Bedchamber, the First Lord of the Buckhounds,-accompanied always with that amazed and frightened "See! see!"-till they finally reached the hands of the Chief Equerry in Waiting, who gazed a moment, with a pallid face, upon what had caused all this dismay, then hoarsely whispered, "Body of my life, a tag gone from a truss-point!-to the Tower with the Head Keeper of the King’s Hose!"-after which he leaned upon the shoulder of the First Lord of the Buckhounds to regather his vanished strength whilst fresh hose, without any damaged strings to them, were brought.

But all things must have an end, and so in time Tom Canty was in a condition to get out of bed. The proper official poured water, the proper official engineered the washing, the proper official stood by with a towel, and by-and-by Tom got safely through the purifying stage and was ready for the services of the Hairdresser-royal.

proper - उचित

safely - निश्चित रूप से, आराम से, आराम से, गलती की आशंका के बिना

purifying - शुद्ध करना, परिष्कृत करना

Hairdresser - नाई

When he at length emerged from this master’s hands, he was a gracious figure and as pretty as a girl, in his mantle and trunks of purple satin, and purple-plumed cap. He now moved in state toward his breakfast-room, through the midst of the courtly assemblage; and as he passed, these fell back, leaving his way free, and dropped upon their knees.

Length - लंबाई

After breakfast he was conducted, with regal ceremony, attended by his great officers and his guard of fifty Gentlemen Pensioners bearing gilt battle-axes, to the throne-room, where he proceeded to transact business of state. His ‘uncle,’ Lord Hertford, took his stand by the throne, to assist the royal mind with wise counsel.

axes - हटाना[कम करना], कटौती करना, समाप्त कर देना, नौकरी से निकाल देना

The body of illustrious men named by the late King as his executors appeared, to ask Tom’s approval of certain acts of theirs-rather a form, and yet not wholly a form, since there was no Protector as yet.

"The sixteenth of the coming month, my liege."

"‘Tis a strange folly. Will he keep?"

Poor chap, he was still new to the customs of royalty; he was used to seeing the forlorn dead of Offal Court hustled out of the way with a very different sort of expedition. However, the Lord Hertford set his mind at rest with a word or two.

A secretary of state presented an order of the Council appointing the morrow at eleven for the reception of the foreign ambassadors, and desired the King’s assent.

ambassadors - राजदूत, दूत

Tom turned an inquiring look toward Hertford, who whispered-

Another secretary began to read a preamble concerning the expenses of the late King’s household, which had amounted to 28,000 pounds during the preceding six months-a sum so vast that it made Tom Canty gasp; he gasped again when the fact appeared that 20,000 pounds of this money was still owing and unpaid; {4} and once more when it appeared that the King’s coffers were about empty, and his twelve hundred servants much embarrassed for lack of the wages due them.

A secretary made report that forasmuch as the late King had provided in his will for conferring the ducal degree upon the Earl of Hertford and raising his brother, Sir Thomas Seymour, to the peerage, and likewise Hertford’s son to an earldom, together with similar aggrandisements to other great servants of the Crown, the Council had resolved to hold a sitting on the 16th of February for the delivering and confirming of these honours, and that meantime, the late King not having granted, in writing, estates suitable to the support of these dignities, the Council, knowing his private wishes in that regard, had thought proper to grant to Seymour ‘500 pound lands,’ and to Hertford’s son ‘800 pound lands, and 300 pound of the next bishop’s lands which should fall vacant,’-his present Majesty being willing. {5}

Tom was about to blurt out something about the propriety of paying the late King’s debts first, before squandering all this money, but a timely touch upon his arm, from the thoughtful Hertford, saved him this indiscretion; wherefore he gave the royal assent, without spoken comment, but with much inward discomfort.

reflecting - विचार करना, दर्शाना, प्रतिबिंबित करना, परावर्तित करना

miracles - काशिफ, चमत्कार, a wonderful thing

Duchess - रानी/ड्यूक की पत्नी, डचेस

But a sorrowful thought swept it instantly away: he was only a king in name, these grave veterans and great nobles were his masters; to them his mother was only the creature of a diseased mind; they would simply listen to his project with unbelieving ears, then send for the doctor.

veterans - अनुभवी व्यक्ति, सेवानिवृत्त सैनिक, अनुभवी, पुराना सिपाही

Simply - पूरी तरह से, आसानी से, केवल, ऐसे हि, सादगी से

Petitions were read, and proclamations, patents, and all manner of wordy, repetitious, and wearisome papers relating to the public business; and at last Tom sighed pathetically and murmured to himself, "In what have I offended, that the good God should take me away from the fields and the free air and the sunshine, to shut me up here and make me a king and afflict me so?

John, with the Lady Elizabeth and the little Lady Jane Grey; though the spirits of the princesses were rather subdued by the mighty stroke that had fallen upon the royal house; and at the end of the visit his ‘elder sister’-afterwards the ‘Bloody Mary’ of history-chilled him with a solemn interview which had but one merit in his eyes, its brevity.

He had a few moments to himself, and then a slim lad of about twelve years of age was admitted to his presence, whose clothing, except his snowy ruff and the laces about his wrists, was of black,-doublet, hose, and all. He bore no badge of mourning but a knot of purple ribbon on his shoulder. He advanced hesitatingly, with head bowed and bare, and dropped upon one knee in front of Tom.

"Rise, lad. Who art thou. What wouldst have?"

The boy rose, and stood at graceful ease, but with an aspect of concern in his face. He said-

"My whipping-boy?"

"The same, your Grace. I am Humphrey-Humphrey Marlow."

Tom perceived that here was someone whom his keepers ought to have posted him about. The situation was delicate. What should he do?-pretend he knew this lad, and then betray by his every utterance that he had never heard of him before? No, that would not do.

pretend - दावा करना, अभिनय करना, मान लेना, बहाना करना, दीखावा करना

An idea came to his relief: accidents like this might be likely to happen with some frequency, now that business urgencies would often call Hertford and St. John from his side, they being members of the Council of Executors; therefore perhaps it would be well to strike out a plan himself to meet the requirements of such emergencies.

frequency - आवृत्ति

strike out - काट देना

requirements - जरुरत, आवश्यक्ता, आवश्यकता, आवश्यक वस्तु, आरक्षित भूखंड

"Now I seem to remember thee somewhat-but my wit is clogged and dim with suffering-"

"Alack, my poor master!" ejaculated the whipping-boy, with feeling; adding, to himself, "In truth ‘tis as they said-his mind is gone-alas, poor soul! But misfortune catch me, how am I forgetting! They said one must not seem to observe that aught is wrong with him."

misfortune - दुर्भाग्य, बदकिस्मती, अवदशा

"‘Tis strange how my memory doth wanton with me these days," said Tom. "But mind it not-I mend apace-a little clue doth often serve to bring me back again the things and names which had escaped me. (And not they, only, forsooth, but e’en such as I ne’er heard before-as this lad shall see.) Give thy business speech."

slovenly - फूहड़

doltish - मूर्ख

whip - चाबुक, हंटर, कोड़ा

"Whip thee!" said Tom, astonished out of his presence of mind. "Why should he whip thee for faults of mine?"

"Ah, your Grace forgetteth again. He always scourgeth me when thou dost fail in thy lessons."

"True, true-I had forgot. Thou teachest me in private-then if I fail, he argueth that thy office was lamely done, and-"

"Oh, my liege, what words are these? I, the humblest of thy servants, presume to teach thee?"

humblest - विनम्र, नीचा दिखाना, नम्र, नम्र बनाना, नीच

presume - मान लेना, चुनौती देना, साहस करना, मान लिया जाना

"Then where is thy blame? What riddle is this? Am I in truth gone mad, or is it thou? Explain-speak out."

riddle - पहेली

"But, good your Majesty, there’s nought that needeth simplifying.-None may visit the sacred person of the Prince of Wales with blows; wherefore, when he faulteth, ‘tis I that take them; and meet it is and right, for that it is mine office and my livelihood." {1}

simplifying - सरलीकृत करना, सरलीकृत करना

livelihood - आजीविका, जीविका, जीवननिर्वाह

Tom stared at the tranquil boy, observing to himself, "Lo, it is a wonderful thing,-a most strange and curious trade; I marvel they have not hired a boy to take my combings and my dressings for me-would heaven they would!-an’ they will do this thing, I will take my lashings in mine own person, giving God thanks for the change." Then he said aloud-

tranquil - शांत, प्रशान्त, प्रशांत, असंभ्रम

"And hast thou been beaten, poor friend, according to the promise?"

"No, good your Majesty, my punishment was appointed for this day, and peradventure it may be annulled, as unbefitting the season of mourning that is come upon us; I know not, and so have made bold to come hither and remind your Grace about your gracious promise to intercede in my behalf-"

unscathed - सकुशल, सही सलामत

"Oh, thanks, my good lord!" cried the boy, dropping upon his knee again. "Mayhap I have ventured far enow; and yet-"

"Then will I speak it out, for it lieth near my heart. Sith thou art no more Prince of Wales but King, thou canst order matters as thou wilt, with none to say thee nay; wherefore it is not in reason that thou wilt longer vex thyself with dreary studies, but wilt burn thy books and turn thy mind to things less irksome. Then am I ruined, and mine orphan sisters with me!"

idle - बेकार, खाली

starve - भूखा मरना, भूख लगना, भूखा होना, भूखा मार देना, भूखों मरना

Tom was touched with this pathetic distress. He said, with a right royal burst of generosity-

generosity - उदारता

"Discomfort thyself no further, lad. Thine office shall be permanent in thee and thy line for ever." Then he struck the boy a light blow on the shoulder with the flat of his sword, exclaiming, "Rise, Humphrey Marlow, Hereditary Grand Whipping-Boy to the Royal House of England!

Banish sorrow-I will betake me to my books again, and study so ill that they must in justice treble thy wage, so mightily shall the business of thine office be augmented."

betake - आगे बढ़ना

lavishness - state or characteristic of being lavish

surpass - से बेहतर परिणाम देना, के परे होना, मात कर देना, से श्रेष्ठ होना

Tom had wit enough to perceive that here was a lad who could be useful to him. He encouraged Humphrey to talk, and he was nothing loath.

loath - अनिच्छुक

He was delighted to believe that he was helping in Tom’s ‘cure’; for always, as soon as he had finished calling back to Tom’s diseased mind the various particulars of his experiences and adventures in the royal school-room and elsewhere about the palace, he noticed that Tom was then able to ‘recall’ the circumstances quite clearly.

calling back - वापस कॉल करना

various - विभिन्न

circumstances - दशा/अवस्था, स्थिति, परिस्थिति, हालात

At the end of an hour Tom found himself well freighted with very valuable information concerning personages and matters pertaining to the Court; so he resolved to draw instruction from this source daily; and to this end he would give order to admit Humphrey to the royal closet whenever he might come, provided the Majesty of England was not engaged with other people.

valuable - क़ीमती

personages - व्यक्ति, मान्य व्यक्ति, मान्य व्यक्ति

pertaining - का होना, संबंध रखना, से सम्बंध रखना, संबंध रखना

dismissed - अस्वीकार करना, निकाल देना, बरखास्त करना, आउट करना, इनकार करना

He said that the Lords of the Council, fearing that some overwrought report of the King’s damaged health might have leaked out and got abroad, they deemed it wise and best that his Majesty should begin to dine in public after a day or two-his wholesome complexion and vigorous step, assisted by a carefully guarded repose of manner and ease and grace of demeanour, would more surely quiet the general pulse-in case any evil rumours had gone about-than any other scheme that could be devised.

Then the Earl proceeded, very delicately, to instruct Tom as to the observances proper to the stately occasion, under the rather thin disguise of ‘reminding’ him concerning things already known to him; but to his vast gratification it turned out that Tom needed very little help in this line-he had been making use of Humphrey in that direction, for Humphrey had mentioned that within a few days he was to begin to dine in public; having gathered it from the swift-winged gossip of the Court. Tom kept these facts to himself, however.

Seeing the royal memory so improved, the Earl ventured to apply a few tests to it, in an apparently casual way, to find out how far its amendment had progressed. The results were happy, here and there, in spots-spots where Humphrey’s tracks remained-and on the whole my lord was greatly pleased and encouraged. So encouraged was he, indeed, that he spoke up and said in a quite hopeful voice-

casual - आकस्मिक, लापरवाह, बेढंगा, लापरवाही से किया गया, अनौपचारिक

"Now am I persuaded that if your Majesty will but tax your memory yet a little further, it will resolve the puzzle of the Great Seal-a loss which was of moment yesterday, although of none to-day, since its term of service ended with our late lord’s life. May it please your Grace to make the trial?"

persuaded - विश्वास दिलाना, मनाना, समझाना, के लिए राजी करना

tax - कर

resolve - निश्चय करना

puzzle - पहेली, रहस्य, राज़, भेद

unacquainted - अपरिचित, अनभिज्ञ

hesitation - हिचक, हिचकिचाहट, हिचकीचाहट

innocently - भोलेपन से, कानूनी ढंग से

"What was it like, my lord?"

The Earl started, almost imperceptibly, muttering to himself, "Alack, his wits are flown again!-it was ill wisdom to lead him on to strain them"-then he deftly turned the talk to other matters, with the purpose of sweeping the unlucky seal out of Tom’s thoughts-a purpose which easily succeeded.

Chapter XV. Tom as King.

The next day the foreign ambassadors came, with their gorgeous trains; and Tom, throned in awful state, received them. The splendours of the scene delighted his eye and fired his imagination at first, but the audience was long and dreary, and so were most of the addresses-wherefore, what began as a pleasure grew into weariness and home-sickness by-and-by.

throned - तख्त, राजसिंहासन, शासक पद, सिंहासन

sickness - रोग, बीमारी, मिचली, उल्टी आना

Tom said the words which Hertford put into his mouth from time to time, and tried hard to acquit himself satisfactorily, but he was too new to such things, and too ill at ease to accomplish more than a tolerable success. He looked sufficiently like a king, but he was ill able to feel like one. He was cordially glad when the ceremony was ended.

satisfactorily - संतोषजनक ढंग से, संतोषजनक ढंग से

tolerable - सहनीय, कामचलाऊ, औसत दर्जे का, ठीक ठाक

cordially - अत्यधिक, सभ्यतः, बाशऊर, शालीनतः, शिष्टाचारपूर्वक, शिष्टतः

The larger part of his day was ‘wasted’-as he termed it, in his own mind-in labours pertaining to his royal office. Even the two hours devoted to certain princely pastimes and recreations were rather a burden to him than otherwise, they were so fettered by restrictions and ceremonious observances.

wasted - व्यर्थ, निरर्थक, क्षीणकाय, नष्ट, कृश, बेकार

labours - जी तोड़ कोशिश करना, मजदूर वर्ग, श्रमजीवी वर्ग, मेहनत करना

restrictions - सीमा, रोक, प्रतिबन्ध, प्रतिबंध, बंदिश

However, he had a private hour with his whipping-boy which he counted clear gain, since he got both entertainment and needful information out of it.

The third day of Tom Canty’s kingship came and went much as the others had done, but there was a lifting of his cloud in one way-he felt less uncomfortable than at first; he was getting a little used to his circumstances and surroundings; his chains still galled, but not all the time; he found that the presence and homage of the great afflicted and embarrassed him less and less sharply with every hour that drifted over his head.

kingship - राजत्व, राजपद

uncomfortable - बेचैन, तकलीफ़देह, अप्रिय, कष्टप्रद, बेआराम, असुविधाजनक

galled - घृणा, असभ्य व्यवहार, कटुता, ढिठाई, क्षोभ होना

But for one single dread, he could have seen the fourth day approach without serious distress-the dining in public; it was to begin that day.
