Household Ghosts and Hidden Treasure
British Goblins: Welsh Folk Lore, Fairy
Mythology, Legends and Traditions (1881)
Book 2 Chapter 2
In this superb chapter, we learn
about how Welsh ghosts are involved with revealing hidden treasure!
Sikes tells us about the ghost of St. Donat, Anne Dewi's ghost, and
the ghost on horseback. We also hear about how often Ghosts with
their fairy allies transport people through the air - much as
occurs within modern American Spiritualism. In addition we learn
much of the superstitions surrounding Hares as well as how to
exorcise a haunting spirit.
