The younger daughter, who was the very picture of her father for courtesy
and sweetness of temper, was withal one of the most beautiful girls ever seen.
As people naturally love their own likeness, the mother doted on her elder
daughter and at the same time had a horrible aversion for the younger. She
made her eat in the kitchen and work continually.
The King's son, who saw five or six pearls and as many diamonds come
out of her mouth, desired her to tell him how that happened. She thereupon
told him the whole story. The King's son fell in love with her, and, considering
with himself that such a gift was worth more than any marriage portion,
conducted her to the palace of the King his father, and there married her.
