A number of men from an unknown area of London, who attend to Anonymous 224, a woman with "unusual symptoms" residing at Goswell Street. They agree that it is unlikely that Anonymous 224 suffers from Melancholy, Hysterical Passions, "or Fits of the Mother." They prescribe her medication, however, "both Cathartick and Emetick," but her condition never improves, even when they double their dosage. These physicians are then led to conclude that she was bewitched.(2 - 3)
