And some time after at the same cow penn did utter to Elizabeth damnable, wicked and scandalous words ... and bade her goe down to Yeocomoco to the witch her mother ... which most horrible and damnable facts and crimes, were the said Eliza really guilty of as they are charged upon her by Dorothy, should make her liable to no lesse punishment than burning to death by the laws of England.
      And some short time after Henry went up to John's house and abused Eliza with greivous and scurrillous names and terms, calling her severall tymes witch and saying that hee defyed all her witchcraft and witches workes and further declared that hee valued not what shee could doe so long as hee did not say hee would prove her a witch, and at severall other tymes and places Henry and Dorothy (as apt instruments of the Devill) have horribly defamed and malitiously scandalized Eliza., calling her a witch and her children witches imps, seldom or never calling them by any other names, whenever they spoke about them.
