George, do you get a couple of good sickles
ready against to morrow morning, and we will
e'en reap the corn ourselves." When the young-
ones told their mother this: »Then, says she, we
must be gone indeed! for, when a man under-
takes to do his business himself, 'tis 10) not so
likely that he will be disappointed." So she re-
moved her young ones immediately, and the corn
was reaped the next day by the good man and
his son.
Never depend upon the assistance of friends
and relations in any thing, which you are able
to do yourself; for nothing is more fickle and
1) to leave. 2) to come. 3) to go. 4) to tell. 5) to go.
6) to «end. 7) to grow. 8) in plaats tan even. 9) in
plaats tan do not. 10) in plaats tan it is.
57. De geluMige ongelukkige.
Two friends, who had not seen each other for
a long while, met 1) one day by accident. —
»How do you do?" says one. » So so," replies the
other: » and yet I was married"since you and I
were together."— »That is good news." —» Not
very good; for it was my lot to choose a terma-
gant."— »It is a pity I" — » I hardly think it so;
for she brought 2) me two thousand pounds." —
»Well, there is comfort!" —»Notsomuch ; for with
her fortune I purchased a quantity of sheep, and
they are all dead of the rot." — »That is indeed
distressing!" — » Not so distressing as you may
imagine; for by the sale of their skins I got 3)
more than the sheep cost me." —»In that case
you are indemnified." — »By no means; for my
house and all my money have been destroyed by
fire." — »Alas, this was a dreadful misfortune!"
— » Faith, not so dreadful — for my termagant
wife and mylhouse were burned together."
1) to meet. 2) to bring. 3) to get.
