The young girl, Mary Ellins, voids "stones by the urinary passages," for the space of "a month or two." This leads to "strong suspitions of Witchcraft" upon Catherine Huxley, who allegedly said to Mary Ellins the day the girl and her friends threw rocks at Huxley, calling her a witch, "Ellins, you shall have stones enough in your ---" Huxley is therefore "Apprehended, Examined and Searched."
