     The father and his two Daughters

There was a man who had two daughters named as Nancy and Flora. Nancy got married to a  gardener while Flora to a tile-maker. They both lived a happy married life.

After a few days, the father went to Nancy who had married the gardener, to see how she was and how all things went with her. She said, "All things are excellent with me, and I have only one wish, that there may be a heavy  rainfall, in order that the plants may be well watered."

Not long after, he went to the daughter who had married to the tile-maker, and likewise inquired of her how she was; she replied, "I want for nothing, and have only one wish, that the dry weather may continue, and the sun shine hot and bright, so that the bricks might be dried."

Then the father said to her, "If your sister wishes for rain, and you for dry weather, with which of the two am I to join my wishes?'
