A poor man, presenting himself before the King of Spain,asked his charity, telling him that he was his brother. Theking desiring to know how he claimed kindred to him, the poorfellow replied,We are all descended from one common fatherand motherviz., Adam and Eve. Upon which the kinggave him a little copper piece of money. The poor man beganto bemoan himself, saying,Is it possible that your Majestyshould give no more than this to your brother?Away,away,replies the king;if all the brothers you have in theworld give you as much as I have done, you'll be richer than Iam.

一个穷汉去见西班牙国王,说自己是他的兄弟,求他施恩周济。国王想知道他何以攀认亲戚,穷汉回答说,我们有共同的祖先亚当和夏娃。听了这话,国王就给了他一个小铜子儿。于是穷人开始叫屈,说:难道您国王陛下就给兄弟这么一点点钱吗?走开,快走,国王回答,如果世界上你所有的兄弟们都像我这样给你一个铜板,你就比我还有钱了。
