  1. (no title) (continued)

    There was a man and his wife lived in a small house.

    (continued from previous page)
    a whole lot of people talking and arguing. When they looked down they saw that there was a heap of money on the ground between them. Then they knew that they were a pack of robbers and that they were dividing the money between them. So the woman let the door fall down on top of them. Then they got a bit of a fright and they ran away and they left all their money behind them. The man and his wife then went down and got all the money and they went home. Then the man told his wife that she was the cleverest woman that ever lived. So she gave up all her simple ways and they lived happy from that day until the day they died.
