54. De Landman en zijne Zonen.
A certain husbandman lying at the point of
death, and being desirous that his sons should
continue in the farming business, made 1) use of
this expedient to induce them to it. He called
them to his bedside, and spoke to this effect: »All
the patrimony I have to bequeath to you, my
sons, is my farm and my vineyard, of which I
make you joint-heirs. But I charge you not to
let it go out of your own occupation; for if I
have any treasure besides, it lies buried somewhere
in the ground, within a foot of the surface."
This made the sons conclude that he talked of
money which he had hid 2) there. So after their
father's death they carefully dug 3) up every inch

market. — » Why, are not you a couple of silly
blockheads," says the first man they met 2), »to
let your ass march in state before you , and go on
foot yourselves?" — The old fellow, upon this
reproof, sets his son upon the ass. — »Sirrah," says
the next man that came by, »you'll 3) come to
the gallows. What, you ungracious young dog,
must you ride, and make your father walk after
you?'" — The old farmer, upon this, orders his
son to dismount, and got 4) upon the ass himself.
» Why, you hardhearted old rogue, you," says
