She came the second night, but the man stood up by the fire, at four o'clock she came again, the man fell a sleep. The witch let the baby fall on the floor, and the man awoke. And struck the witch with a kick, she crocked him and bit him they went out to on the street fighting and he bet her with a stick, but she went at last and on her way up she killed a horse on him when she could not get the baby.
