The Prince and the Pauper - Chapter 27


The Prince and the Pauper - Chapter 27
The King and Miles Hendon spend an unreported amount of time manacled in prison. An old servant is brought in to identify Hendon but denies him out loud only to return as a source of news and bits of food. The King is comforted by two ladies, also prisoners because they are Baptists. They are burned at the stake while the King, and all the other prisoners, are forced to witness. He is also made aware of many other injustices that occur in his kingdom. He concludes: "The world is made wrong; kings should go to school to their own laws, at times, and so learn mercy."
