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.
