Witches were long ago accepted as an established fact. The consentaneity of their testimony was considered, by their inquisitors, as irrefutable proof of their reality. The concensus 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 unbaptised infant, the powdered bone of a hanged man & certain herbs, the nature of which we do not feel it 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 transports her to the convocation of witches. / (c) 1967 New Albion Bookshop P.O.
