Diana Bocking gives deposition alleging that her daughter Jane Bocking has suffered fits since February, in which she has stomach pains like the pricking of pins, swoons, can eat little or no food, and daily vomits crooked pins. Diana claims that she has found more pins and a lath-nail clenched in Jane's fists after Jane is seen to catch at the air with her hands. Jane is also said to talk to unseen persons, complain that Rose Cullender and Amy Denny appeared to her, and be stricken dumb. Diana produced the pins and lath-nail as evidence in court.(35-38)
