Massachusetts: The afflicted girl Mercy Lewis describes in detail the witches’ sacrament mentioned by Abigail Williams the previous day.  She says it was led by “a white man” accompanied by “a great multitude in glittering robes” who sang Revelation 5:9 and Psalms 110 and 149.  She says they tried to get her to eat some of the “red bread” of which they were partaking, but that she would not, instead saying “That is not the bread of life, that is not the water of life; Christ gives the bread of life, I will have none of it!”
