The Prince and the Pauper - Chapter 22
The King thoroughly humiliates Hugo with his skill in fighting so Hugo plots to get revenge. First he tries to produce an ulcer upon the king's leg using a caustic poultice. This is interrupted. His second ploy is to have the king arrested. He accomplishes this by staging the theft of a package from a woman's basket and planting the evidence upon Edward. A crowd is about to exact punishment upon him when Miles Hendon appears on the scene with his sword flashing.
