WITCHES

DOWN IN JAMAICA, THERE IS A LARGE PLANTATION HOUSE WHICH IS FALLING
APART AND NOT ONE JAMAICAN WILL GET NEAR IT. IF THEY DO, THEY ARE
CURSED AND WILL DIE A VIOLENT DEATH. THE LADY WHO OWNED IT WAS
CALLED THE WHITE WITCH OF ROSE HALL. SHE HAD THREE JAMAICANS FOR
HER HUSBANDS. SHE HAD EACH ONE KILLED AND BURIED UNDER A PALM
TREE.

Submitter comment: I SAW THE HALL AND THE THREE GRAVES AND OUR GUIDE WAS NOT A
JAMAICAN, BUT RATHER A SPANIARD. NOT ONE JAMAICAN WOULD GET NEAR
IT.
