Grey Washer by the Ford (The)

.

An Irish wraith which seems to be washing clothes in a river, but when the “doomed man” approaches she holds up what she seemed to be washing, and it is the phantom of himself with his death wounds from which he is about to suffer. (Hon. Emily Lawlett; Essex in Ireland, p. 245–6.)
