The Bald Knight
A BALD KNIGHT, who wore a wig, went out to hunt. A sudden puff of wind blew off his hat and wig, at which a loud laugh rang forth from his companions. He joined in the joke by saying:
What a marvel that hairs which are not mine should fly from me, when they have forsaken even the man with whom they were born.
Those who cannot take care of their own, should not be entrusted with the care of another's property.
