"In merry England in the time of old, when good King Henry the Second ruled the land, there lived iwthin the green glades of Sherwood Forest, near Nottingham Town, a famous outlaw whose name was Robin Hood. No archer ever lived that could speed a gray goose shaft with such skill and cunning as his nor were there ever such yeomen as the sevenscore merry men that roamed with him through the greenwood glades."
~from Robin Hood, by Howard Pyle
