One of Machen's oddly oblique stories, in that the narrator witnesses nothing, he only assembles rumors and other people's stories to patch together his tale. Set in England during WWI, the first part of the story is a bit of a slog, because he mentions other stories based on rumors that the reader knows nothing about.
Once he starts the story, testimony piles up to show that the Little People of Wales, like John Buchan's Scottish Little People are actually quite nasty.
