Title: A Bewitched Pig

A woman sold a pig at Beaumaris to a man called Dick y Green; she could not that day sell any more, but the following market day she went again to Beaumaris.  Dick was there waiting her appearance, and he told her that the pig he bought was bewitched and she must come with him to undo the curse.  Away the woman went with Dick, and when they came to the pig she said, “What am I to do now, Dick?”  “Draw thy hand seven times down his back,” said Dick, “and say every time, ‘The blessing of God be on thee.’”  The woman did so and the pig suddenly recovered.
