The Foreshadowing

winterCreepy History 30. It’s October, and that means Creepy History month on Windows into History again! This week we have been looking at some quotes from A Relation of Apparitions of Spirits in the County of Monmouth and the Principality of Wales, by Rev Edmund Jones, published in 1813:

One Rees Thomas, a carpenter, passing through a place called Rhiw Edwst, near Cappel Ewen, by night, heard a stir coming towards him, walking and speaking; and when they were come to him he felt as if some person put their hand upon his shoulder, and saying to him, Rhys bach pa fodd yt y’ch chwi?— (Dear Rees, how are you)? which surprised him much; for he saw nothing. But a month after, passing that way, he met a burying in that very place; and a woman who was in the company, put her hand upon him and spoke exactly the same words to him that the invisible Spirit had spoken to him before; at which he could no less than wonder. This I had from the mouth of, Mr. T. I. of Trevach a godly minister of the gospel.
