In Godville, there lived Maitre Hauchecome and his enemy Maitre Malandain. One day, Maitre Hauchecome saw a piece of string in the road and thought that he could make use of it in the future, and so bent to pick it up. He noticed, however, his enemy Maitre Malandain was watching, and he knew that he would be embarrassed if Maitre Malandain saw him picking up an itsy bitsy string, so Maitre Hauchecome acted as if he were searching for something. That day, news came out that someone lost his wallet. Quickly, Maitre Malandain accused Maitre Hauchecome of stealing the wallet, and the town believed him, but Maitre Hauchecome did not steal the wallet. The town of Goderville did not believe Maitre Hauchecome was innocent, even though someone found the wallet in the street and returned it. Maitre Hauchecome died of a broken heart, despairing of being thought a liar.
