THE ETERNAL WATCH

EMPEROR FREDERICK BARBARROSA'S SPIRIT KEEPS WATCH OVER THE
GERMAN PEOPLE FROM HIS SUPPOSED RESTING PLACE IN THE
KHYFFHAUSER CASTLE IN THURINGA. A FLOCK OF RAVENS KEEP A
CONSTANT VIGIL OVER HIS GRAVE. WHEN THEY ARE GONE, THIS MEANS
THAT BARBARROSA'S SPIRIT HAS LEFT THE GRAVE, AND IS ROAMING
GERMANY TRYING TO LEAD THE PEOPLE IN TIMES OF PERIL. IT IS SAID
THAT THE RAVENS WERE GONE DURING THE TIME OF THE WELT KRIEGS
THIS MEANS THAT THE HEMLICHEKAISSER WAS GONE FROM HIS TOMB.

Submitter comment: MR. STOERKEL IS GERMAN, HEARD THROUGH TRADITIONAL SOURCES.
