Thomas Spatchet is allegedly granted freedom from shaking and wringing fits, attributed to prayers on his behalf, for a period of twenty-two weeks. He continued to suffer benumbings, but is able to participate to a degree in religious life again. Persons deeply affected by his condition prayed over him while he had a violent fit until he lay quiet again. During this period, he was able to read Scripture and other books for as long as an hour, and write mostly without weariness.(11-12, 18)
