Title: Conjuror's Dress


He (the raiser of the devils) was much resorted to by the friends of parties mentally deranged, many of whom he cured.  Whenever he assumed to practise the ‘black art,’ he put on a most grotesque dress, a cap of sheepskin with a high crown, bearing a plume of pigeons’ feathers, a coat of unusual pattern, with broad hems, and covered with talismanic characters.  In his hand he had a whip, the thong of which was made of the skin of an eel and the handle of bone.  With this he drew a circle around him, outside of which, at a proper distance, he kept those persons who came to him, whilst he went through his mystic sentences and performances.
