Tooked her from us house them did. Her baint no witch, my mamma, but thems burned 'er for a witch. Tweren't 'er doin' Master's aminals took sick and tweren't 'er killin' Master's bairns neither, but thems tooked 'er. Her did full cry for help but none come or if it did, did come too late.
Seed it good I did. Burned in green afire her did then them say "See, proof she be witchin'!" and thems laughing because they bairns and they aminals not die no more.
But die they will, aye.
Tweren't my mother done be witchin', oh no.

    Yes....good one to put on the heap. Even with a modern education, good old fashioned ignorance is still among us.
