Story told by Bernard MacPiff to Joseph Mcfrisk.


One night Denis Rorque was coming from the town and he thought he heard children laughing behind the ditch but it was the fairies. One of them put his hat on Denis's head. When Denis went home he left the hat on the dresser. In the morning when he looked at was his own hat there.
