Mabel Swinton takes Joan Seager into her home to dress her wounds. She reports that "when I opened her to dresse her: the place did smoake like a pot that had seething liquor in it that were newly vncouered, and I found her to bee very sore, and could not abide to bee touched." Mabel adds that someone tried to dress the girl's injuries, when she asked Joan about it, she said "Lambs maid Becke had brought her a thing in a dish, and had drest her." However, the dressing contained a venomous speck in the ointment that had stuck to Joan's inner thigh. When Mabel pulled it away, she found that it had festered the spot it was stuck to.(18-21)
