Going thither, as he approached, a wolf darted up from the spot, and with a few leaps was out of sight.

The king, in deep agony of mind, entered his chariot, and was driven to the palace. How sad was that night for royalty! Filled with remorse for having signed the fatal decree, and knowing not how to retrace his steps or to retrieve the effects of his rash act, the king passed the hours in agony.
