The collectors responded:

 “Sire, your subjects are very sad and dejected.”

  • No importance. We don't trust it; they have a lot of money, even if they are sad and dejected, go and bring me some money!

But one day, the king learns that the people are singing and dancing. Young and old, young and old, everyone celebrates day and night; they eat, drink, have fun, play the trumpet and the drum.

 » Ah! said the king, now I see that the people are completely ratified. Collectors, stop taking samples!

But make sure that no misfortune happens to us!…
