The princess awoke in Slumberland. She sat on the marble steps and waited. When the Elfin-knight appeared, she was ready.

“Where’s my waistcoat? Tonight is the revel at the Elfin-Mount and I seek the hand of the Mer-king’s daughter.”

Thistle Tassel” said the princess. A golden waistcoat appeared in her hands. “Will you pay?”

“I will.”

“Give me a berth aboard the Ship that sails to Mars. I seek the Old Man.”

“The Old Man is lost. Everyone knows that.”

“Then I shall find him and bring him back. The worlds have been too long without him.”
