Ní raibh pioc dá mhearathall ar an dtriobún óg a thuilleadh ná gurbh é Saesar féin d’órdaigh an chathair do chur trí thine, agus ná raibh ag an slua ach corp an chirt nuair a bhíodar ag éileamh díoltais d’imirt air.

D'éist an damh go h-aireach leis an méid sin cainte, agus d'admhuigh sé go raibh corp an chirt ag an asal ngach nídh dá ndubhairt sé. "Chidhfir féin, a Luaimin an chroidhe istigh," ar seisean, "go ndéanfad-sa do chomhairle go beacht. Cas liom é muna ndeinead."

Beirim mo bheannacht duit; níor dheinis uirthi ach corp an chirt.

B'fhéidir ná raibh corp an chirt aige sa mhéid sin acht do thuigeas uaidh gurab é an Béarla
