# The hermit came to me in a friendly way. I said to him: ‘I have had a very long walk, and am tired out. I should be grateful if you would let me rest here for a little while.’ ‘You are heartily welcome’, he said, ‘The little which I can offer you as refreshment is at your service. ’

‘Where do you come from?’ asked the old man.

The traveller took no notice of the question.

‘Listen, old man; can you get me horses to take me to Jadrino?’

‘How should we poor people have such things as horses?’

‘Well, then, can I get a guide? I will pay him what he asks.’

‘Wait,’ said the old man, shutting the window. I will send my son out to you. He will show you the way.’
