Doctor Pordage is accused of "entertaining at His House one Everard a reputed Conjurer" and conversing with angels. He is said to have looked "toward the unlawful Art of Black Magick." He is visited by two spirits, four years prior "for about three Weeks and no longer." They appeared in the form of a giant and a dragon. He assures the Commissioners that these visitations of apparitions were not initiated by him, but the work of "the Malice of the Devil toward [him]." (9-10)
