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?'
