EXCERPT:

Once on a time there was a lad who went out to woo him a wife. Amongst other places, he came to a farm-house, where the household were little better than beggars; but when the wooer came in, they wanted to make out that they were well to do, as you may guess. Now the husband had got a new arm to his coat.

‘Pray, take a seat’, he said to the wooer; ‘but there’s a shocking dust in the house.’

So he went about rubbing and wiping all the benches and tables with his new arm, but he kept the other all the while behind his back.
