68. Sammy the Comferee.

This curious story seems to be a cross between the Potiphar's wife episode with which the ballad of "Young Seidal" opens, and the African tale of the lard girl who melts if exposed to the sun.

Compare Dayrell, 1-2; Tremearne, 192; Parsons, Andros Island, 125 and note 2 for references.

Next: Note 69. Grandy Do-an'-do.
