Summary - A man plays a trick on his colleagues.

Snow on the roads forced carters to spend the night in a certain place. The only room to be had belonged to a man who had died a fortnight before. One of the carters left the room and returned naked, saying he had come back from the grave to find out who was sleeping in his bed. Everybody leapt out of bed and nobody got much sleep that night.
