Summary

A wicked stepmother inadvertently has her own daughter killed.

A long time ago, the man who occupied a castle at Weem was widowed, and remarried. He had a daughter, and his new wife also had a daughter of her own. She didn't like her stepdaughter, and arranged to have her killed by a wild priest who lived in the mountains. The two girls were always together, so the stepmother gave her stepdaughter a bracelet to wear, so the priest could identify her. She sent the two girls to find a lost calf on the mountain. But the stepdaughter admired the bracelet and the girl gave it to her, so the wild priest took the wrong girl. Her mother went mad when she heard, and committed suicide.
