Excerpt from Cumberland Westmorland, Ancient and Modern: The People, Dialect, Superstitions and Customs
The author takes advantage of the present occasion to appeal to persons possessed of local information, to place it on record, ere it be lost. He would urge upon them not to be hindered by the vulgar notion that traits of manners and fragments of superstition are subjects of no value, an opinion that could only proceed from a sadly distorted view of history. Let us save what we can, if only a remnant.
