Summary

Willem, an old fisherman, finds a pocket-book on the sands. He is obliged to share half of its contents with Frits, one of his comrades, who sets out on a voyage the following day. The fisherman gives the pocket-book to his daughter, Bertha, but her fiancé declares that it must be handed to the police. This is done, but as half of the money is missing, Willem is accused of theft. The unfortunate man is unable to establish his innocence, and when after many days of waiting news comes that his comrade's ship has gone down with all hands, the last ray of hope is apparently gone. It is only when the body of Frits is washed ashore and discovered by Bertha, with the missing money still in his pocket, that Willem is proved innocent.
