June 5 (May 26, o.s.)

Massachusetts: Ann Putnam, Mary Walcott and Mercy Lewis suffer terrible fits in Salem Village in the presence of Marshal George Herrick and Constable Joseph Neale. They accuse Mary Bradbury of Salisbury, Sarah Rice of Reading, Wilmot Reed of Marblehead, and Elizabeth Fosdick of Malden of afflicting them. They also accuse Fosdick of bewitching a black slave woman belonging to Mr. Peter Tufts of Charlestown.

New Mexico: The apostolic notary Agustín de Colina, after sending his third summons to Juan García de Noriega, finally gets him to come to the church of Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe del Paso to sign a statement attesting that Governor Vargas refused on June 2 to let Colina present him with Father Hinojosa’s response to the governor’s refusal to give him a copy of the proceedings in their dispute over jurisdiction. García states that Colina’s story is accurate but refuses to sign until the governor sends a copy of the proceedings to the viceroy as he promised.
