title Kellys fairy : a tale of former times in Prince Edward Island (reprinted from the Examiner, January 7, 1893)
creator Owen, G.F.
subject Island Magazine
subject Prince Edward Island Museum
description The early settlers of Prince Edward Island, especially those from the green isle of Erin, had many superstitious beliefs. Omens were closely watched, and charms were constantly used to ward off "the many ills that flesh is heir to." Among these superstitions, none, perhaps, was more prevalent than the belief in fairies; and the following story of one of the pioneers will illustrate to some extent the habits and feelings of a former generation.
