hearsay Fairies were last seen in Westmorland by Jack Wilson, on his way home across Sandwick Rigg. A gathering of the small folk were playing in the moonlight, but when they saw Jack they fled up a ladder into the clouds, which they closed behind them.
Yance gane, ae gane, and nivver saw mair o' them.
