Summary - How a hump was removed from one man and given to another humpbacked man.

A humpbacked man went to get New Year whisky. On the way home he stopped to rest at a big, green hillock. He heard the most beautiful music and went inside. He danced and sang along with the occupants. They removed the hump from his back and he went home. He had been gone a year.

He explained what had happened and another humpbacked man went to get the New Year whisky. The same thing happened to him, but he didn't join in when he went inside the hillock and they put the first man's hump on top of his own.
