"One time my Aunt was going to a wake, and she had to pass through a wood on her way.
When she was going out on a gap from the wood she saw the ground thickly strewn with pieces of silver money, mostly shillings. She took up a few and looked at them but left them back from where she took them.
She came back the same way that evening but there was no silver there, only withered leaves lay where the money had been.
