The third volume contains an essay (four pages) by Patrick Kavanagh - ‘A World of Sensibility.’ “Jack Hamill who had sufficient respect for the fairies to leave their lone bush standing hadn’t always been as wise. In his earlier years he had quarried out forts and other gentle places and his luck was none too good. Sickness and cattle losses dogged him till he grew wise in the ways of the fairies.”
