    "The King and Queen of Hearts were seated on their throne when they arrived,
    with a great crowd assembled about them--all sorts of little birds and beasts,
    as well as the whole pack of cards: the Knave was standing before them, in
    chains, with a soldier on each side to guard him; and near the King was the
    White Rabbit, with a trumpet in one hand, and a scroll of parchment in the
    other. In the very middle of the court was a table, with a large dish of tarts
    upon it: they looked so good, that it made Alice quite hungry to look at them--
    `I wish they'd get the trial done,' she thought, `and hand round the

    But there seemed to be no chance of this, so she began looking at everything
    about her, to pass away the time. "

    And it worked fine with an added try catch, but worked fine without it just gave exception warning in the middle.
