The Slave of the Royal Bedstead is a round little man who serves the owner of the Royal Bedstead of Quok.
In the headboard of the mahogany bedstead of the King of Quok is a hidden compartment opened by a secret spring. Inside is a folded paper with several leaves fastened together like a book. Upon the first page is written this verse:
This leaf he must double
And set it on fireTo obtain his desire.
When this is done a great smudge is created, out of which the Slave of the Royal Bedstead appears.
The slave once gave the King of Quok, then a ten-year-old boy, a magic purse which dispensed an unending supply of twenty-five cent pieces, one at a time. ("The Queen of Quok")
