Elizabeth Southerns alleges in her confession that the best way to kill someone through witchcraft is to make a clay image of the person and dry it thoroughly. She says that if you want them to be afflicted in one place more than another, to take a thorn or pin and prick that part of the image. If you want a part of their body to be consumed away, take that part of the image and burn it. To consume their whole body, take the remainder of the image and burn it; this will cause them to die.(B2v-B3v)
