The Black Man.

One night a girl was coming home off her rambles. As she was passing a thick ivy quick she got very much afraid. Suddenly this black man appeared before her. Soon it disappeared again. In a few moments she heard it playing music and dancing. Then all was quiet again, and after a while she saw the black man again, but soon disappeared like a flash of lightning. She continued on and saw an old black cow along the road. The cow come up to her and she fainted.
