James Device alleges during his examination that, three years before, he was at his grandmother's house with his mother, Elizabeth Device, when Elizabeth was approached by a "thing in shape of a browne dogge, which his mother called Ball." The spirit spoke to Elizabeth and bid her make a clay image of John Robinson, dry it hard, and crumble it little by little so that Robinson's body would decay and wear away. Ball said that when the image was gone, Robinson would die; he then vanished. The next day, James saw his mother make an image. She crumbled it over about three weeks, and two days after it was gone, Robinson was dead.(G2-G2v)
