Once there was a man who had seven sons and no daughters. He scarcely dared hope to have a girl. But at last his wife did have another baby, and it was a girl. All the family rejoiced. The father wanted to baptize the little girl at once. He sent the boys to the river for water. They were good boys, and they hurried to obey. They hurried so much that the boy with the pitcher dropped it into the running water.
