A Mr. Hart was assaulted by a group of elves one night.
Whilst walking over the downes he saw an innumerable quantity of pigmies or very small people dancing in a typical fairy ring and making all manner of small odd noises.
Hart was very amazed but was not able to run away from them, being as he supposes, kept there in a kind of enchantment fell to the ground in a daze.
The little creatures surrounded Mr. Hart and pinched him all over and made a sort of quick humming noise all the time.
The following morning, Hart awoke to find himself in the center of a ring pressed into the grass, a fairy ring.
