  1. There was a King having a party & a woman came in & she had a baby in her arms & she saw this baby was only born last night. The King said it was a nice baby & some of the clan saw it would bring harm & damage on the province of Ulster. Then some of them said to kill her.
    The King said do not put her to death she is a lovely baby & I will put here into a dun[?] & let no one go near her except the person who will be nursing her. They all agreed. After the girl grew up the girl met a [?] man & he named her. The King expelled them from the county & they went to live in Scotland.
