By-and-by Tom's reading and dreaming about princely life wrought such a strong effect upon
him that he began to ACT the prince, unconsciously. His speech and manners became curiously
ceremonious and courtly, to the vast admiration and amusement of his intimates. But Tom's
influence among these young people began to grow now, day by day; and in time he came to be
looked up to, by them, with a sort of wondering awe, as a superior being. He seemed to know so
much! and he could do and say such marvellous things! and withal, he was so deep and wise!
Tom's remarks, and Tom's performances, were reported by the boys to their elders; and these,
also, presently began to discuss Tom Canty, and to regard him as a most gifted and extraordinary
creature. Full-grown people brought their perplexities to Tom for solution, and were often
astonished at the wit and wisdom of his decisions. In fact he was become a hero to all who knew
him except his own family—these, only, saw nothing in him.
Privately, after a while, Tom organised a royal court! He was the prince; his special comrades
were guards, chamberlains, equerries, lords and ladies in waiting, and the royal family. Daily the
mock prince was received with elaborate ceremonials borrowed by Tom from his romantic
readings; daily the great affairs of the mimic kingdom were discussed in the royal council,and
daily his mimic highness issued decrees to his imaginary armies, navies, and viceroyalties.
After which, he would go forth in his rags and beg a few farthings, eat his poor crust, take his
customary cuffs and abuse, and then stretch himself upon his handful of foul straw, and resume
his empty grandeurs in his dreams.
(from The Prince and The Pauper by Mark Twain)
