  1. (continued from previous page)
    A smith is a very strong man and he has to be so for the work he has to do.
    Smiths never work on Good Friday or May Day.
    It is not right to fight or argue with a smith because if he curses you on the anvil you will have no luck, but misfortune will pursue you.
