EXCERPT:

Once on a time, but it was a long, long time ago, there were two brothers, one rich and one poor. Now, one Christmas eve, the poor one hadn’t so much as a crumb in the house, either of meat or bread, so he went to his brother to ask him for something to keep Christmas with, in God’s name. It was not the first time his brother had been forced to help him, and you may fancy he wasn’t very glad to see his face, but he said:

‘If you will do what I ask you to do, I’ll give you a whole flitch of bacon.’

So the poor brother said he would do anything, and was full of thanks.
