Alison Device gives deposition against her grandmother, Elizabeth Southerns, alleging that John Nutter once came to Southerns for help with a sick cow. Southerns agreed to look at the animal, and had Alison lead her to it at about 10 o'clock at night; Southerns stayed there for about half an hour, and Alison's sister Jennet led her home again. The cow was dead the next morning, leading Alison to believe that Southerns bewitched it to death.(C-Cv)
