There is an image of Derfel Gadarn ... in whom the people have so great confidence, hope and trust that they come daily on pilgrimage unto him; some with kine, and others with oxen or horses, and the rest with money; insomuch that there were 500 or 600 pilgrims to a man’s estimation that offered to the said image the fifth day of this present month of April. The innocent people hath been sore allured and enticed to worship the said image, insomuch that there is a common saying amongst them that whosoever will offer anything to the said image of Derfel Gadarn, he hath power to fetch him or them that so offer out of Hell when they be damned.
