But even in this sleep he had a dream or something like that (...)

Now he sprang quickly out of bed and read his geography book, and at once he knew the whole lesson!

And the old washerwoman put her head in the door and nodded good morning to him.

"Many thinks (NB! = thanks) for your help yesterday, dear child," she said. "May the Lord make all your dreams come true!"

Little Tuck didn't know anything that he had dreamed, but you see-our Lord knew it!

Comment: As a reward for his good deed, helping the old washerwoman, she comes to little Tuck in his dream, helps him with his homework and predicts him a bright future.
