    • 1886, M. Nunez González, O muíño dos tíos Mariquiñas:
      un térmeno medio entre os trasnos e as almas en pena; pero que participaban un pouco máis desta última condición, sólo que eran moi pacífecas, pois nunca se soubo que se metesen con nadie non metendose primeiro con elas. A estas pantasmas chamabanlle xás; abundaban como as moscas no mes da Agosto, e eran pola súa bondá, pouco temidas dos labregos.
      ... a middle term in between elves and banshees, but a little closer to the latter ones and more peaceful, since they never messed with nobody if not disturbed first.
