BLUE BEARD ON~ upon a time there was a man who had fine hous~s in t~wn and country, gold and silver plate, embroide~ep fu~iture, and coaches gilt all over i but, unfo.rtunatel¥, this man had a blue beard, which made him look so uglY and terrible, that there was not a woman or girl who d~d not run away from him. . One of his neighbours, a ladyof rank, had two daughters, who were perfectly beautiful. He proposed to marry cine .of them, leaving the mother to choose which of the two she would give him. Neither of the daughters, however, would marry a man with a blue beard. A further reason which they had for disliking him was, that he had already been married several times, and nobody knew what had become of his wives. Blue Beard, in order to improve the acquaintance, took the girls with their mother, three or four of their most intimate friends, and some other young people who resided in the neighbourhood to one of his country seats, where they spent an entire week. Nothing was thought of but excursions, hunting and fishing-parties, balls, entertainments, and suppers. Nobody went to bed i the whole night was passed in games and playing merry tricks on one another. In short, all went off so well, that the youngest daughter began to think that the beard of the master of the house was not so blue as it used to be, and that he was a very worthy man. 23 22 I have brought a cake and a little jar of b tter, which my mother has sent you:' The Wolf called out, this time in r er a softer voice .. ~ll the bobbin, aI1.Q the latch will 0 up." Little Red Ridmg-Hood pulled the bobbin, a the door opened. When the Wolf saw her come i , he hid himself under the bedclothes, and ~id to her .. Put the cake and the little jar of butter the cup ard, and come into bed with me. u . Little Red Riding-flood ndressed and went to the bedside, and was very fnuch tonished ~o see how different her grandmother looked what she did when she was up and dressed• ..

Grandmother what long ears you have!
