A great nail arrived today from Huntsville, Alabama, USA.
The story with it says.
"My great-aunt kept jars of old nails, pins, cat claws etc around her house-
A superstition to ward off evil spirits and burglars .
This is from one of those jars."
She insists in the letter that this is true, and when her aunt died the family shared out the jars.
