One day Brigid Grenham was minding sheep and she was sitting on a rock. There was a little hole in the side of it. She saw something in it and she put in her hand to see what it was.
When she pulled it out and looked at it what was it, but an iron rack and comb. When she saw what it was she ran home to show it to her grandmother. Her grandmother told her to go back and put it back where she got it, so she put it in the same place. The next day she went back to see was it in it, but there was no sine of it.
