II. Evidence (?)
Well, I shan't go, at any rate, said Alice Besides, that's not a regular rule You invented it just now It's the oldest rule in the book, said the King Then it ought to be number one, said Alice The King turned pale, and shut his notebook hastily Consider your verdict, he said to the jury There's more evidence to come yet, please your majesty Said the White Rabbit, jumping up in a great hurry This paper has just been picked up What's in it? said the Queen I haven't opened it yet, said the White Rabbit But it seems to be a letter, written by the prisoner to, to somebody It must have been that, said the King Unless it was written by nobody, which isn't usual you know Who is it directed to? said one of the juryman It isn't directed at all, said the White Rabbit In fact, there's nothing written on the outside He unfolded the paper as he spoke, and added It isn't a letter after all, it's a set of verses Are they in the prisoner's handwriting? asked another of the juryman No, they're not, said the White Rabbit And that's the queerest thing about it The jury all looked puzzled He must have imitated somebody else's hand, said the King The jury all brightened up again Please, Your Majesty, said the Knave I didn't write it, and they can't prove I did There's no name signed at the end If you didn't sign it, said the King, that only makes the matter worse You must have meant some mischief Or else you would have signed your name like an honest man There was a general clapping of hands at this It was the first really clever thing the King had said that day That proves his guilt, said the Queen It proves nothing of the sort! said Alice Why, you don't even know what they're about! Read them, said the King The White Rabbit put on his spectacles Where should I begin, please Your Majesty? he asked Begin at the beginning, the King said, very gravely And go on till you come to the end Then stop These were the verses the White Rabbit read
