Commentary: “Will you swear to obey and respect your masters and superiors, to sweep the garrets, to spin tow, to ring bells, to howl, to yell, to fly, to cook, to grease, to suck, to back, to blow, to fry, everything whatever time you are ordered to?” “I swear.” “Well then, my girl, you are now a witch.
