The story on this set:

Pretty girl decides to marry a wealthy farmer, she asks him to leave the house to tend his hay. The farmer mistrusting her thinks 'what the hell is going on?' and decides to hide behind the gate. She thinks that he has gone to the hay stacks. Soon after a horseman rides into the village whereupon the girl gives him a signal that her husband rode to the hay stacks. The girl presses himself to the horseman and gives him a fiery kiss, while being leadenly observed by the farmer exclaiming that he did not go to the hay stacks.

The horseman disappears through the window, like a thief. Whereupon the girl exclaims that "Dear man, he visited me with hones (intentions)' I thought you were at the hay stacks.

The farmer then replies that "Damn it" even had he gone to the hay stacks he would forbid her to have this type of pleasure. The devil should go to the haystack.
