⒀Then one day, when Snow-white was a woman, the Queen looked in the glass and said, "Tell me, glass upon the wall, Who is most beautiful of all?"
⒁And the glass said, "Snow-white is most beautiful of all."
⒂When the Queen heard this, she was very angry. She said, "Snow-white is not more beautiful than I am. There is no one who is more beautiful than I am."
⒃Then the Queen sat on her bed and cried.
⒄After one hour the Queen went out of her room. She called one of the servants, and said, " Take Snow-white into the forest and kill her."
⒅The servant took Snow-white to the forest, but he did not kill her, because she was so beautiful and so good.
⒆The man took Snow-white into the forest, but he did not kill her. He said, "I shall not kill you; but do not go to the King's house, because the Queen is angry and she will see you. If the Queen sees you, she will make some other man kill you. Wait here in the forest; some friends will help you."
⒇Then he went away.
