One day the King met him and asked him the cause of his happiness. The Miller frankly told him that neither he was jealous of any body nor any body was jealous of him. Again he loves his wife and children. He was neither in debt. The King was much pleased with him and remarked that the dirty cap of miller was better than his crown and his wind mill was better than his Kingdom. The King called him the pride of England.
