Name Description Original Text
Anonymous 124A familiar in the shape of a toad belonging to Anonymous 154 that drinks the milk that is left out for it in a flat dish. This toad likely functions as any other familiar, to perform a variety of services for the witch it belongs to. In this case, however, the familiar functions to debunk witch beliefs. it is dissected and proves to be a 'normal' toad. Dr. Harvey asked where her familiar was, and desired to see him. Shee immediately fetched a little milk, and put it in a flat dish, and went to a chest and chucked with her mouth, as toades doe when they call one another; and immediately a toad came from under the chest, and drunk some of the milke.
