Title: The Devil Taking Posession Of A Man who fished on Sunday


About half a mile from Cynwyd is the ‘Mill Waterfall,’ beneath which there is a deep linn or whirlpool, where a man, who was fishing there on Sunday, once found an enormous fish.  ‘I will catch him, though the Devil take me,’ said the presumptuous man.  The fish went under the fall, the man followed him, and was never afterwards seen. Such is the tale, but it is, or was believed, that Devil had changed himself into a fish, and by allurement got the man into his power and carried him bodily to the nethermost regions.
