Sleigh Without Bells: a ghost story about the Donnellys by James Reaney
A young German from Hibbert Township Perth County is sent by his father to take some money to a farmer in Southwold twp; he is warned to avoid driving his sleigh through Biddulph Township and its Irish settlement. In a blizzard he ends up at the Donnelly house and becomes heavily involved in their tragedy, barely escaping with his life. He is pursued by their ghosts, but crossing a river leaves them behind and arrives safely home. With surprise, we learn that he was dreaming this while sleeping near the ruins of the Donnelly farmhouse a year or two after their massacre.
