Did the peddler respect the confidence reposed in him by the crofter?
Of course not, the old crofter was a kind man and that’s why he gladly allowed the stranger peddler to stay in his cottage for a night. He not only allowed him to stay but he also served him with supper and tobacco and amused him with the game of cards. He showed him thirty kroner from the pouch he received in payment for supplying his cow’s milk. They both left the cottage at the same time. But after half an hour later the peddler came, smashed the window frame, and took out the thirty kroner from the pouch.
Thus, the peddler did not respect the confidence reposed in him by the crofter.
