One time there lived a farmer who had one only daughter, she got sick and had a doctor. The doctor said he had nothing to do for the girl that she was dying. The farmer went for the priest on horse back, the priest said he would be after him. When the farmer came near his own home two galloping horses started out before him, he followed them and they went through his own yard and when they had passed the girl he had left in bed sick and dying came out to the yard strong and healthy as she ever was, only for the man having followed the horses his daughter would have followed them and be dead when he came back. The girl lived for years after.
