Here, at Christmas, he entertained his tenants assembled round a glowing fire made of the roots of trees and other great logs, and told and heard the traditionary tales of the village respecting ghosts and witches, till fear made them afraid to move. In the meantime, the jorum of ale was in continual circulation.

Near the gate a horse-block for the conveniency of mounting.
