At this moment the King, who had been for some time busily writing in his note-book, cackled out "Silence!" and read out from his book, ""Rule 42. ALL PERSONS MORE THAN A MILE HIGH TO LEAVE THE COURT."|
Everybody looked at Alice.
"I'm not a mile high," said Alice.
'''You are," said the King.
"Nearly two miles high," added the Queen.
'Well, I shan't go, at any rate," said Alice;"besides, that's not a regular rule; you invented it just now."
"It's the oldest rule in the book," said the King.
"Then it ought to be Number One," said Alice.
The King turned pale, and shut his note-book hastily. "Consider your verdict," he said to the jury, in a low, trembling voice.
