List of about 55 Gaelic curses probably from Uist.
Charm entitled 'Eolas Beum Sula' [Exorcism of the Eye] but the text corresponds with 'Mallachd' or 'A Malediction' as found in Carmina Gadelica, vol. II. The charm begins 'Thainig di[th]ist a mach a dorust na cathrach neomh' and a note states that Colum Cille [St Columba] was able to heal men and animals.
Curse beginning 'Fo mhollac[hd] nam ban fo thabhan nan con', S fo shuibh na ard-dorus droch ghui.' The text has been scored through as if transcribed elsewhere.
Curse beginning 'Sgath na Nathrach ort a bheist' and reportedly said by one woman to a pregnant woman, who died along with her child. Text has been scored through as if transcribed elsewhere.
Curse entitled 'Guidhe' [Ulc a Dhèan Mo Lochd or The Wicked Who Would Harm Me] beginning 'Cas an cois gach ursa, Bas am bun gach cailbhe.' The text is in ink and has been scored through in pencil as if transcribed elsewhere.
Fragment of a story entitled 'Luideag na h Aibhine' in which a man ties a woman up in front of his house but she escapes and curses him.

Text has been scored through.
