  1. About fifty years ago a woman was living in Moyasta. One day a strange man came into her house and he told her to go to his house because his child were sick. Then he told her where the house was.
    She went along the road until she came to where it was. She had never seen it before, but she went in. There was an old man sitting inside. He told her that when she would be going home she would meet a loaf of bread on the road and that she should pick it up, and that she would meet a load of hay, and she should stand still while it was passing her. Then she went out of the house to go home.
