Summary - Robbers in Snizort.

Two men killed a packman and took all his goods. They also caught a young boy whom they were going to kill the following day, but he escaped and managed to get to the manse at Snizort. One of the men was caught and hanged.

A conversation about the names of Lowland shepherds who came to the area follows the story.
