A merchant sends out his son, Fair Brow, with a sum of money to trade. He spends it all paying off a dead man's debts so he can be buried. The merchant gives him another sum, and he spends it buying a kidnapped slave woman, whom he married. His father throws him out, and he can not work. His wife has him sell her paintings, and warns him not to tell anyone who paints them. Some Turks recognize them as the handiwork of the Sultan's daughter, and trick him into revealing it, so they carry her off again.
