  1. (continued from previous page)
    lovely present she got from the old queen.
    She handed it to him and he opened the parcel and found a beautiful red dress and a red shawl. She took both of them and threw them on a bush and they went on fire and he said to her "so would you go the same as the bush." So good bye now and dont forget to say God bless everything any more when you got safe from the old queen.
