Jane Wenham was indicted at the Hertfordshire assizes on March 4. 1712, for ‘‘conversing with the devil in the form of a cat.” under the provisions of the act of 1604, repealed in 1736. Her prosecutors wished to have her also in dicted for practicing witchcraft to the harm of Ann Thorn, a servant girl six teen years old, but this was not al lowed. although evidence was produced at the trial to show what injury had been done the victim by means of crooked pins and by placing cakes and cats’ hair in Ann Thorn’s pillow and how tlie prisoner had caused the death of some cattle simply by walking through a turnip field. The jury brought her in “guilty.” and Justice Powell passed sentence of death, but took steps to quash the ver dict. Wenliam’s prosecutors published an account of the case, but their argu ments were pulverized by scientific men.
