3、"Well, that is not a person, as you think," Kaetheli explained. "Do you see, there is a money box with money in it for the people who are poor and miserable and homeless."

<云度_转码句子>"I will not go to be auctioned," Erick burst out and his anger flashed as never before.
"I do not care about the mattress, it is on account of Marianne that I ask," Sally explained. "Do you know, she now has some new people in her house and I should so much like to see them, and therefore I wanted so much to know whether you could not sacrifice a mattress so that Marianne could pull the horsehair for a mattress, for Mother will not let me go into the house without a good excuse."

The winter passed, Easter was approaching, but no answer came. This time the pastor's wife got ahead of her husband.
