Once there lived a poor widow who had three daughters. One day the youngest daughter said to her mother:-
"I am going to seek my fortune so make a cake for me." So her mother made her a cake and gave it to her. This young girl had when leaving a story book, a dog, and a stick. She walked on some miles until mid - day when she reached a well and she said to herself "I will sit down here and get some water and eat a portion of this cake."
She was not long there when a robin came and said to her "Are you lonely?"
