Summary

Fishermen escape from a very large old man.

Men who were fishing off Eriskay went ashore to eat. They were joined by a very large old man. The skipper sent one of his crew for more food, but he did not return. The next two he sent did not return either. He went to look for them and found them in a boat, ready to go. He got in and they left. When the old man discovered they had escaped he started chanting a verse.
