"Not by my counsel," said the Prince. "I
would save my horse, Coalblack, and the Witch's
Snowflake (a noble beast and worthy of a better
mistress) which are both stabled in the courtyard.
After that, let us make shift to get out to high
ground and pray that we shall find an outlet. The
horses can carry two each at need, and if we put them
to it they may outstrip the flood."
