Margaret Muschamp, in the company of her mother, stepbrothers and stepsister, allegedly encounters Dorothy Swinow on the way to church in Berwick. Muschamp identifies Swinow, despite never having met or seen her prior; though Swinow is in custody for bewitching Muschamp, she has been permitted the freedom of the town. Muschamp insists on returning home and immediately falls into a severe fit lasting two hours in which she claims to be tormented by Swinow and two others.(12-13)
