Transcription - Mallie and the Trow

Here's a paragraph from the short folklore story 'Mallie and the Trow'.

Well she got them all tucked in and she sat by the fire and she was doing some sewing, because she used to mend some clothes for people who had a few pounds.  So she was sitting by the fire sewing away when there was a knock at the door, and it was very unusual in those days for anybody to knock at a door because people usually just lifted the latch and came in.  But Mallie went to the door and she opened it, and there before her was a tiny weeny man, no bigger than about a 5-year-old, but with long grey hair and long moustache and beard, and wee tinkling eyes, and she knew then that this must be a troll.
