Once upon a time, there lived a widow woman and her son, Jack, on their small farm in the country. Every day, Jack would help his mother with the chores - chopping the wood, weeding the garden and milking the cow. But despite all their hard work, Jack and his mother were very poor with barely enough money to keep themselves fed. We must sell our cow, Old Bess, and with the money buy enough seed to plant a good crop. I'll go into town and sell Bessy.
