Title: The Pullet's Egg Divination


When Mr J Roberts, of Llanfair Dyffryn Clwyd, was a young man, he, his sister and the servant man, formed a company to find out by divination their future life partners.  They procured a pullet’s egg; it was emptied into a cup and to this was added flour and salt, in equal proportions. These ingredients were mixed together, made into three small cakes, and baked.  They all ate one half of their cake and the other half was placed in their respective stockings, to be placed under their bolsters. They went upstairs backward and thus to bed, preserving the while absolute silence.  It was believed, he said, that they should that night, in their dreams, if everything were carried out properly, see their partners, who would come to their bedsides to offer them a drink of water.
