EntryEliz. Vaughan, widow, of Puddle Wharf, said that her husband Robert had gone to the apothecary Elliot and had found Hope, Elliot's apprentice, there. Hope had offered cheap medicine; RV had taken an infusion of coloquintida, with violent effects. Elliot had told EV that he would not give it to the Devil. Elliot gave RV milk.
