A woman charged with sorcery and burnt at Maubec in France in
1577. A damsel whom she accused as also being a sorceress, which the girl
denied, confronted her. The woman then screamed, "Dost Thou not remember
how at the last dance at Croix du Pate, thou didst carry a pot of poison?"
The damsel at this did confess, and was burnt along with her accuser. A.G.H.
