The Giantess's Apron-Full by Anonymous
A huge giant, in company with his wife, travelling towards the island of
Mona, with an intention of settling amongst the first inhabitants that had
removed there, and having been informed that there was but a narrow
channel which divided it from the continent, took up two large stones, one
under each arm, to carry with him as a preparatory for making a bridge
over this channel, and his lady had her apron filled with small stones for
the same purpose; but, meeting a man on this spot with a large parcel of
old shoes on his shoulders, the giant asked him how far it was to Mona.
The man replied, that it was so far, that he had worn out those shoes in
travelling from Mona to that place. The giant on hearing this dropped down
the stones, one on each side of him, where they now stand upright, about a
hundred yards or more distant from each other; the space between them was
occupied by this Goliah's body. His mistress at the same time opened her
apron, and dropped down the contents of it, which formed this heap.
