Puss in Boots || Pg 7/13

The King received him with great kindness, and as the fine clothes he had given him extremely set off his good appearance (for he was well made, and very handsome in his person), the King’s daughter took a secret inclination to him, and the Son had no sooner cast two or three respectful and somewhat tender glances, but she fell in love with him to distraction. 
The King then asked the Son to join him in his coach, and take a walk with them. The Cat, quite overjoyed to see his project begin to succeed, marched on before, and meeting with some countrymen, who were mowing a meadow, he said to them:
“Good people, you who are mowing, if you do not tell the King, that the meadow you mow belongs to my lord Marquis of Carabas, you shall be chopped as small as mince-meat.”
