       Additional Information  
      Throughout Dumfriesshire and Galloway remnants of Old World customs still linger, suggesting a remoter time, when superstitious practice and belief held all-important sway in the daily round and task of the people. The author trusts that by recording the results of his gleanings as they were received, and without attempting to subject them to higher analysis or criticism, a truer aspect and reflection of the influence superstition upon the social life of those older days, may be all the more adequately presented. Found in this work are topics dealing with witchcraft and superstition such as witchcraft, fairy lore, wraiths, death customs, ghost lore, witch trials, brownie lore, warnings, funeral ceremony, and haunted houses.
