"It is a short story of a man who hated working, helped others, gave the outside of the house to a henpecked wife, and had a dog named Wolf. One day they went out to hunt. It was evening and Rip knew he wouldn't make it home on time. Then somebody came and offered refuge trying to play a trick on him. Rip took it and with him he drank merrily and became drunk. When he woke up he found it was a trick, and that his gun and dog were gone. Surprisingly, he had woken up some 20 years later at the place he met the man. Rip went into town to find his home in shambles and that the colonies were now a country."
