One coming to the place where the stick was, he found the ground around covered with filthy crawling reptiles such as he had never seen before . He returned frightened without the walking stick and told what he had seen. "I knew something like that would happen" said the Friar "The lure of gold is strong, but the grace of God is stronger."

4. How Frieze Cloth Was Made.
Long ago when people wanted frieze coats they used to spin wool and then send it away to be made into frieze cloth. When they used to shear the sheep they used to grease the wool and then card it. Then they used to make rolls of it, and put it on the spinning-wheel. Then they used to twist the wheel and pull the wool gradually and make it into thread and they used to continue like that until they had all the wool spun into thread. Then they used to send it away to the mill and it used to be made there into frieze cloth.
