John Winnick is examined before Justice Robert Bernard, and alleges in his confession that he was visited by a bear-like spirit about the size of a rabbit (Anonymous 130) around Midsummer 29 years before. He had lost a purse containing 7 shillings, and was cursing the loss while working in the barn when Anonymous 130 appeared to him. Anonymous 130 offered to see that the purse was returned to him if he would renounce God and Christ, and worship it instead; Winnick agreed, and was instructed to return to the same place the next day.(3)
