Poster has black ink printed on white paper with an image of a witch stirring a cauldron, surrounded by images of castles, a black cat, a toad, a baby with a cracked skull, a skeleton, and a hanging corpse. At the top left is a white box with black text - "Witches were long ago / accepted as an established / fact. The concentaneity of / their testimony was consi- / dered, by their inquisitors, as / irrefutable proof of their re- / ality. The consensus being, / that to become a Witch one / must first feed a consecrated / wafer to a toad, which is then / burned, & the ashes are mixed / with the blood of an unbapti- / sed infant, the powdered bo- / ne of a hanged man & certain / herbs, the nature of which we / do not feel consistent with / the public welfare to divulge. / With this noxious brew the / Witch anoints the palms of / her hands & a stick, which / when placed between her legs / immediately trna- / sports her to / the convocation / of Witches."
