The King did not yet wish to give him the promised reward and set him a third task to do. Before the wedding could take place the tailor was to secure a wild boar which had done a great deal of damage in the wood. »All right,« said the tailor, »this is child's play.«
When the boar caught sight of the tailor he ran at him with foaming mouth and gleaming tusks to bear him to the ground, but the nimble hero rushed into a chapel, which chanced to be near, and jumped quickly out of a window on the other side. The boar ran after him and when he got inside the door was shut after him, and there he was imprisoned, for the creature was too big and unwieldy to jump out of the window too.
