Katherine and the Hen Wife
When she came to the hen-wife’s she asked for eggs, as she had been told to do; the hen-wife said to her, ‘Lift the lid off that pot there and see.’ The lassie did so, but nothing happened. ‘Go home to your minnie and tell her to keep her larder door better locked,’ said the hen-wife. So she went home to the queen and told her what the hen-wife had said.
