The presiding judge of the criminal division of the schweinfurt district court first instructed the man, who had lived in prison for a long time and was a fugitive, in detail about his duty to tell the truth.

The lady, a commercial employee, was happy to see her "little paradise of intergrown pines, firs, jasmine and ornamental shrubs" to have found a nature-loving buyer who is his cousin.
