Did the peddler expect the kind of hospitality that he received from the crofter?
No, the peddler had never expected the kind of hospitality that he received from the crofter. He actually expected sour faces when he knocked on the door to ask shelter for the night. Instead of making sour faces crofter was happy to get someone to talk to about his loneliness. Immediately crofter put the porridge pot on the fire and gave peddler a supper and also a big slice from his tobacco. Finally, he entertained stranger by playing a game of cards “Majolis” until bedtime.
Note: Here stranger refers to peddler as he is stranger for crofter.
