    they were playing football. One fairy kept the ball to himself for a
    long time. Then the boy said " well done, Red Cap". As soon as he
    had this said the ball hit him on the head and hurted
    him and the fairies went away and brought the cow. The
    boy went home and told his mother and she told to go
    and look for the cow. the boy went to the Fairies Fort. He saw
    the cow and asked the fairy king to give him the cow. The
    fairy said "I will not but I will give you twenty pounds". The
    boy said "I only want my cow". When he would not take
    the money the other fairies came out and beat him and they
    and would not give him any cow.
