Once upon a time there was a man in England. He had a boy working for him. The boy went home. After a few weeks the man sent for him again. The boy went back. Whe he landed in England he was very tired. The man told him to go to bed. So he did. When he was in bed awhile he saw a ghost grinning down on him. He tried to bless himself but he could not. He had a cross in his pocket. He blessed himself with the cross and the ghost went away.
