A Hare Crossing The Road
: STORIES OF SATAN, GHOSTS, ETC.
Mr. Jones said that when he was a lad, he and his mother went to Caerwys
fair from the Vale of Clwyd, intending to sell a cow at the fair. They
had not gone far on their way before a large hare crossed the road,
hopping and halting and looking around. His mother was vexed at the
sight, and she said--We may as well go home, Dick, for no good will come
of our journey since that old witch crosses our path. They went on,
though, and reached Caerwys in safety, but they got no bid for the cow,
although they stayed there all day long.
