trials. The familiar, a spirit who helped the witch work magic (evil
magic) was captured in an animal's body and nursed from it (the third
nipple). The problem was that *any* skin mark or pimple, anywhere on the

which is an Elizabethan or early seventeenth century work. This book was
used in the Salem Trials, in the 1690s.
