GEORGE FOX AND THE WITCHES
After the etching by Robert Spence,
owner of the original manuscript journal of
George Fox, and by courtesy of the Artist.

As I was going to a meeting, I saw some Women in a Field, and I discerned them to be Witches and I was moved to go out of my way into the Field to them and declare unto them their Conditions: telling them plainly, They were in the Spirit of Witchcraft.
