Summary

The sheep-stealer and the tailor fleeing from noises in the graveyard.

A woman had died and had nuts put in the coffin with her. A man who had gone to steal sheep was returning by the graveyard and heard someone ask, "Is he fat?" "Fat or thin, there you have him," replied the thief, and went to tell the tailor he had heard the woman in the grave cracking the nuts. The tailor went back with him, heard the noise and fled.
