Description

Excerpt from The Contributor, Vol. 17: A Monthly Magazine; Organ of the Young Men's Mutual Improvement Associations of Zion; July, 1896 Two or three witnesses testified for the defense, and two women of a jury of three, appointed to examine the body of the defendant for witch marks, reported that the only mark that could be so called was from natural causes, though the third juror declared it a witch-mark. Some of the witnesses impeached the accusing girls by testifying that the latter had said it was some other person than Goody Nurse that had afflicted them. This appears to have been the first instance in which a person charged with witchcraft had friends who possessed the sense, courage and knowledge necessary to enable them to offer effective evidence for the defense, and the trial jury brought in a verdict of not guilty.
