- This story was told to me by my grandfather about three weeks ago. There were three youths walking along the road one day. They saw a school and they went over to it and went in in. The Master was teaching English to the boys at the time. The three boys did not know what they were saying, for they did not know English. But they said they would like to learn it. So they went to that school for three days. one boy learned "we three". The other learned "for the want of money". The last boy learned "all right". One day, they were walking the road, and they saw a dead man. They waited till the guards came, and they asked the three boys who killed the man. The boys said, " we three" for what said the guards. "For the want of money" said the second boy. The guards said they would bring them to the barracks. "All right" said the third boy.Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
