A child born on on Whit Sunday or Whit Monday will be hung or drowned.

Take them out when dressed and bury them in clay for six minutes, all except the head. If this is done all will be well.
This also is the case with animals as well and requires the same cure.
The child will either kill somebody or be killed itself.
