  • Description

    Item note: Recitation. Wife died three years ago, left with five children he can't care for. Can't pay taxes, is old, has no strength. Poverty is widespread in the world. Tried to marry another wife - had to send her away because she was a great thief, also a loiterer and wanderer. That's the truth! Recordist's note: In Peter Cooke's notes, this is PCUG64-8.22.A15.
