Scene - Mowgli is accepted into the Seeonee Wolf Pack
Mowgli, a baby boy was adopted by Mother and Father Wolf. They will be going to the monthly pack meeting so Mowgli and their new cubs can be identified.
Look well, O Wolves!
Ye know the law, ye know the law! Look well, O wolves!
What have the Free People to do with a man’s cub?! Now, the Law of the jungle lays down that if there is any dispute as to the right of a cub to be accepted by the Pack, he must be spoken for by at least two members of the Pack who are not his father and mother.
Who speaks for this cub? Among the free people who speaks?
The man’s cub - the man’s cub? I speak for the man’s cub. There is no harm in a man’s cub. I have no gift of words, but I speak the truth. Let him run with the Pack, and be entered with the others. I myself will teach him.
We need yet another. Baloo has spoken, and he is the teacher for the young cubs. Who else speaks beside Baloo?
Look well - look well, O Wolves!
Let him be accepted, then.
O Akela, and ye the Free People, the law of the jungle says that if there is a doubt which is not a killing matter in regard to a new cub, the life of that cub may be bought at a price. Now to Baloo’s word I add one bull, and a fat one, newly killed, half a mile from here. Is that difficult?
And that is how Mowgli was entered into the Seeonee Wolf-Pack at the price of a bull and on Baloo’s good word.
