Joan Willimott alleges during her examination that, the week before, her spirit came to her and told her that "there was a bad woman at Deeping who had giuen her soule to the Diuell." Her spirit appeared in a form uglier than usual, and urged Willimott to give it something, even just a piece of her girdle, in payment for its services. She told it she would give it nothing, for she had not sent it there - she had only once sent it on an errand, to check on Francis Lord Rosse. Willimott added that the spirit had reported that Francis Lord Rosse would recover.(E2v-E3)
