WHOSO PULLETH OUTE THIS SWERD OF THIS STONE AND ANVYLD IS RIGHTWYS KYNGE BORNE OF ALL BRYTAYGNE
The day came when the Archbishop of Canterbury, on the advice of Merlin, summoned the nobility to London for Christmas morning. In his message the archbishop promised that the true succession to the British throne would be miraculously revealed.
The archbishop held his service and when matins were done the congregation filed out to the yard. They were confronted by a marble block into which had been thrust a beautiful sword, which passed through a steel anvil which had been struck in the stone.
The anvil had been inscribed with letters of gold.
Many of the nobles tried to pull the sword out of the stone but none was able to, so a watch of ten knights was set over the sword.
Arthur rode to St. Paul's to get the sword lodged in the stone for his brother because his sword was missing from its sheath.
The yard was empty, the guard having slipped off, so Arthur strode up to the sword, and, without troubling to read the inscription, tugged it free.
