Title: Satan Snatching A Man Up Into the Air


It would appear that poor Bob was doomed to a sad end.  His last exploit is thus given:—| Wrth fyned adre o chware cardia, ar Bont Maesgwyn gwelai Robert Llwyd Hari gylch crwn o dân; bu agos iddo droi yn ol, cymerodd galon eilwaith gan gofio fod ganddo Feibl yn ei boced, ac i ffordd ag e rhyngddo a’r tân, a phan oedd yn passio fe’i cipiwyd i fyny i’r awyr gan y Gwr Drwg, ond gallodd ddyweyd rhyw air, gollyngodd ef i lawr nes ydoedd yn disgyn yn farw mewn llyn a elwir Llyn Hari.| Which in English is as follows:—| When going home from playing cards, on Maesgwyn Bridge Robert Llwyd Hari saw a hoop of fire; he was half inclined to turn back, but took heart, remembering that he had a Bible in his pocket.  So on he went and when passing the fire he was snatched up into the air by the Bad Man. He was able to utter ‘Damn’ to him, but at once he was dropped down and fell dead into a lake called Harry’s Lake.
