32-12-38 The Devils Cave
About sixty years ago a man was going to the sea. He went down a long passage for a short-cut. There was a cave leading out to the sea. The cave was very dark, and he lit a match to see his way out of the cave. At the end of the cave he saw a man. The man stooped down tie his lace, but when he stooped he saw the cloven foot on the man. The man ran out of the cave. The cave was closed up a week after.
