Once upon a time a young lad was accustomed to go mitching to his grandmother's house. His father and mother did not want him to be going out at night but he still kept going out mitching.
One night he was comming home as usual from his Granny's house when a beautiful black carriage pulled by two black horses passed him by galloping with some black men in it. The men beckoned at him to go with them and kept going on. The same thing happened a few times. He then told his father and mother about it but they said it was because he disobeyed them. He told his Granny about it and when he was going home she gave him a little bottle of holy water and told that when the carriage is coming to bless with the holy water and to shake it in a ring round about himself and to put out his hand to stop the carriage and see what happens. He did so. The carriage came and passed him by and seemed to touch him. The men did not beckon at him but looked with horrid faces at him. His hand when he put it outside the ring to stop them remained as black as the ace of spades till the day he died but he never saw the carriage anymore.
