A man who lived in Goland was going round his fields in which he had corn growing.

A man who lived in Goland was going round his fields in which he had corn growing. There was a rock standing by the side of the field. He sat down on the rock to light his pipe, as soon as he sat down, he heard a voice. He looked round and saw a fairy. T[?] fairy said to him, under this rock you will find gold. The man looked and got the gold. So he lived rich afterwards.
