Margaret Gurr is visited by a gray devil on July 20, 1681, while she lying in Bed. The Devil "took me by the Wrists and Hands and held them so very tall, that I could not wag or stir them," and griped her so hard that her hands swelled and ached for a whole day afterward. When Margaret Gurr tried to rise, the Devil would not let her, but as soon as he left, she "was in good ease."(2)
