IN MERRY ENGLAND in the time of old when good King Henry the Second ruled the land there lived within 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 shades.
