The Old People—Li vecchi

The wagon-maker looked at the large wound on Master Seppi’s face, and he was moved to compassion and gave him the cart. Now the sexton was happy and took the cart to the collier. The collier gave him some coal. Then he brought the coal to the blacksmith who gave him the saw that he brought to the carpenter. So the carpenter gave him some wood that he carried to the baker who gave him some bread. Then he carried the bread to the dog who gave him some hair, and the sexton put the hair on his nose, and his wound was healed.
