Prince Guerini t JEAN DE MAILLY 317 PRINCE GUERINI It from him" caressed him and drew him near him so that he could grab the arrow, which he did. The young prince was grief-stricken at having lo~t his arrow and begged the wild man to return it to him that very instant. The savage responded -frankly that, instead of giving it to him, he would reak it into pieces if the boy did not open the prison door and find some )V~y to undo his chains.
