Mother Agnes Waterhouse accuses Agnes Browne of lying, on the basis that she owns nothing like the dagger Browne claimed the thing like a black dog threatened her with. Joan Waterhouse takes the opportunity to insist that when she conjured Sathan, he appeared as a dog, not a dog-thing with an ape's face. Queen's Attorney Master Gerard asks Mother Waterhouse to summon Sathan to settle the matter, but she insists that she no longer has any power over him.(28-36)
