Реферат: Robin Hood and the Butcher
The sheriff of Nottingham hated Robin Hood even more. He was happywhen he could catch one of Robin's men and put him into prison. But he couldnot cat Robin. Robin Hood went to Nottingham very often but he was alwaysdressed in different clothes and the sheriff could not recognize him. So Robinwas never caught. One day he was walking through the forest and met a butcher.This butcher was riding to the market at Nottingham. He was dressed in a bluecoat. On each side of his grey horse hung a basket full meat. Robin came outfrom behind the trees and stopped him.
«What have you, my good friend?» he asked. «Meat,»answered the man. «Fine meat for Nottingham Market. Do you want to buysome?»
«Yes, I do,» said Robin. «I'll buy it all from you,and your horse, too. How much do you want? I want to be a butcher and go toNottingham Market.» So the butcher sold his horse and all the meat to
Robin. Then Robin changed clothes with him. He put on thebutcher’s blue clothes and the butcher went away in Robin’s green suit.
