PEPPER AND SALT
THE SKILLFUL HUNTSMAN
Once upon a time there was a lad named Jacob Boehm, who was a practical huntsman.
One day Jacob said to his mother, “Mother, I
would like to marry
Gretchen—the nice, pretty little daughter of the Herr Mayor.”
Jacob’s mother thought that he was crazy.
“Marry the daughter of the
Herr Mayor, indeed! You want to marry the daughter of the Herr Mayor?
Listen; many a man wants and wants, and nothing comes of it!”
That was what Jacob Boehm’s mother said to him.
But Jacob was deaf in that ear; nothing would do but his mother must go to the Herr Mayor, and ask for leave for him to marry Gretchen. And Jacob begged and begged so prettily that at last his mother promised to go and do as he wished. So off she went, though doubt was heavy in her shoes, for she did not know how the Herr Mayor would take it.
