(continued from previous page)

when he came out he had a hump on his back.

A little girl lived near by and every time she passed she said 'wax' 'Wax', now this made the fairy very angry. One day he chased the little girl into a wood but she had a stick and hit him with it, and he fell and the lump was a sack of gold. Some people say she buried it in Esker -Abbey and others say she brought it home with her to the north.
