A Drift


This text is from Diamond alogia a discourse on witchcraft as it
was acted in the family of Mr. Edward Fairfax of poynton in the
county of York and deer 1621 reproduced with biographical
introduction and notes topographical and olestra Dove by William
Grange and this was done in Harrogate are at Cal printer and
publisher Harold office 1892 and this is from the very first
printed edition of this. What I did was recited the same way it
would have been recited in Witchcraft and allowed the text to be
modified by the voice-to-text mechanism that I'm employing at the
moment. The result is a new text with an under text or undertow.
What you are reading yours the undertow which is already set

On Saturday the 23rd of February the women apprehended whereby

women my elder daughter was fetched from home by the Constable into
neighbors to make trial if she could Challenge and in a company

where I was by the men of force head and she said unto me quote
Father Here We two of the witches in the house Pig weight and the
woman with the spot on her face whom I know knots but she is in the
red Petticoat. To which I answered if thou Dost know her go back

in the men and took hold Saint Margaret Thorpe and said unto her I
know not your name but you were the woman with a spot on your face
at death so often appear to me and trouble me and you are a witch.
And it is true that at that instant the spot so often spoken of was
visibly to be seen on the woman's left cheek. After this was done
the same man character up to a chamber where it doesn't women were
together there she went directly to Janet they've been challenged
her to be the old woman who showed her the pictures and she asked
for the pictures at which all of those who were present greatly
wonder if these two women were ugly unknown to her both their

decide with the Constable to bring Thorpe's wife from Widow pull
and's house where he kept her what she did but before she came the
cat said they must away for Thorpe's wife was coming and they
prayed Helen to tell the woman that they would Terry for her on the
top of the hill. So they departed and Thorpe's wife came in to whom
the children called us before they done when she was first brought
to them in the hall and they told her of The Cat in the bird and
neither could they come out of the trance so long as storks wife
was present. The day after being Sunday Margaret way to Junior was
brought to the children for many persons were desirous to see the

so is a little one also. The woman was carried out sometimes
without the door sometimes without the window at from these places
to call upon the children.
