Lady Cromwell and her daughter-in-law, Mistress Cromwell, visit the Throckmorton home to visit the children and offer comfort to Robert and Mistress Throckmorton. While there, Lady Cromwell sends for Mother Alice Samuel, who dares not refuse because her family is tenant to Sir Henry Cromwell. Lady Cromwell charges Mother Samuel with witchcraft and speaks harshly to her, saying that the spirits possessing the children have identified her as sending them. Jane Throckmorton overhears the conversation while in the throes of a fit, and accuses Mother Samuel of being the cause of it. Mother Samuel denies Lady Cromwell and Jane's allegations.(30-32)
