Joan Throckmorton allegedly recieves another visit from the spirit Smack, in which he claims to have been fighting with Pluck and Catch alongside one of the other Smacks, and to have "beaten them both very much, so that they dare not come to her any more." Smack then advises her to wait a while longer before scratching Agnes Samuel, so that she does not have time to heal before the Assizes. He also accuses Agnes of "cosenting to the death of the Lady Crumwel." Smack tells her that, "to proue this to be true, whensoever any stranger shall come into the house, you shall fall into your fitte, and if then Agnes Samuell shall come unto you and say, As I am a Witch, and consenting to the death of Ladie Crumwell, so I charge thee to depart and to let her come foorth of her fit, you shall presently well." He also promises that she will have numerous fits on the Assizes day, but that Agnes Samuel will be made to pay.(73-74)
