A large crowd had ascended upon the gallows to watch an accused woman meet her end.
She was despised by many especially in her home town of Braintree. They were glad to get rid of her.
Her dealings with the devil had resulted in the deaths of many people, and she enchanted anyone who got in her way. Children included.

The rope fastened around her neck, and the crowd fell silent.
