The enchanter steals the Dear Little Princess. H. Ford.

"The Prince...at once sent ambassadors to ask the Dear Little Princess in marriage.  The King, her father, gave his consent; and Prince Hyacinth, who, in his anxiety to see the Princess, had gone three leagues to meet her was just advancing to kiss her hand when, to the horror of all who stood by, the enchanter appeared as suddenly as a flash of lightning, and, snatching up the Dear Little Princess, whirled her away out of their sight!"
