Aesop's Fables: Townsend (1867)
157. The Bald Knight (Perry 375)
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 pulled up his horse, and with great glee joined in the joke by saying,
'What a marvel it is that hairs which are not mine should fly from me,
when they have forsaken even the man on whose head they grew.'
