65. Mr. Lenaman's Corn-field.

Parkes gave me the only version I got of this good story in Jamaica; he heard it in the parish of St. Ann. Barker, 181-184, tells the same for "Farmer Mybrow," but only to the harvesting. In Cronise and Ward, 152-159, a man tries to harvest rice in Devil's Town. The Devil does all the work, but eventually the pot of rice runs back to the Devil.
