"A man went to knock at the king's door and said, Give me a boat.
The king's house had many other doors, but this was the door for
favours (favours being offered to the king, you understand),
whenever he heard someone knocking on the door for petitions, he
would pretend not to hear..." Why the petitioner required a boat,
where he was bound for, and who volunteered to crew for him and
what cargo it was found to be carrying the reader will discover as
this short narrative unfolds. And at the end it will be clear that
what night appear to be a children's fable is in fact a wry, witty
Philosophical Tale that would not have displeased Voltaire or
