One night I was coming home from Power's of Newtown (Co Wexford) and when I came to a certain part of the Newtown lane, I saw a figure lying across it
I went back to Power's and told them about it. Anyhow I came again to where the figure was, and when I was passin' it, it rose in the air.
When I went home there was no light in the house and I told my father not to light a candle or his pipe, but he forgot about me after a while, and he lit his pipe and I fainted.
