The following tale was told by Mr. Evan Roberts, Ffridd Agored, a farmer
in the parish of Llanfwrog. Roberts heard the story when he was a youth
in the parish of Gwyddelwern. It is as follows:--

A man went from his house for peat to the stack on the hill. As he

the bag down, and ran home as fast as he could.
