A woman from Old Gravel Lane (Anonymous 19) allegedly has a fit after a meeting of Anabaptists. Upon returning home from the meeting, and with the intention of repeating the notes she had taken at the sermon to her husband (Anonymous 482), she suddenly speaks "Noises of another nature, seeming to be the pulling Mewes or Shreamings of three young Kitlings." Immediately after, Anonymous 19 is also struck with blindness. It becomes obvious that the woman is possessed, as she is taken with "strange and unusual Gestures, and involuntary Motions both of her Tongue and other Members."(2-3)
