Eliz., wife of John Legge, testified that she was sent for to help carry Goody Smith, so she took her by her legs and Goody Nicholson by her shoulders, and Mary Trevett and Mary White put an apron under her back.  On Lord's day at night, she was not quite so bad, because Mr. Russell had given her things to take inwardly, but she desired them to lay a plaster on her back, etc.
