Around Hollantide (Halloween), the spirit Anonymous 222 would allegedly talk to the children frequently at the end of their fits. It predicted the manner, number and time of their fits and reported on Mother Alice Samuel's doings. The children would often have fits first thing in the morning, during meals, on Sundays and whenever the church bells rang. The girls also claim that Anonymous 222 cannot kill them, and begin to "accuse Mo. Samuel, openly to her face, & say y they shal not be wel in any place, excpe they continue in her house, or shee be brought to continue wyth them." This lasts about a month.(38-40)
