The sparrow then gave them the light basket and they returned with it to their home. "Let us open and see what is in it" they said. And when they had opened it and looked they found gold and silver and jewels and rolls of silk. They never expected any thing like this. The more they took out the more they found inside. The supply was inexhaustable. So that house at once became rich and prosperous.
