Cauld-lad (The)

of Hilton Hall. A house-spirit, who moved about the furniture during the night. Being resolved to banish him, the inmates left for him a green cloak, and hood, before the kitchen-fire, which so delighted him that he never troubled the house any more; but sometimes he might be heard singing—

“Here’s a cloak, and here’s a hood,

The cauld-lad of Hilton will do no more good.”
