Abstract

AN ALPHABET OF LESSONS FOR GIRLS/ As long as there is a contrary seed, a seed of the Woman, and a seed of the Serpent, there will be opposition, more or less, open or secret. --Reverend Samuel Parris, Sermon in Salem Village, January 3, 1692 A young girl should always be prepared to die. Beware of a black man who would make you a handmaiden of the Devil. Come to God willingly and quietly as if he were your husband. Disagree with no man for men know the best and truest path. Egg-in-a-glass will show your future husband's calling, but this trick is witchcraft. Fast to find the road of correction on the Sabbath. Houses where no women be are like deserts or unfilled land. once the Devil's land. Graveyards are a place to remember that the Lord takes all girls' souls. Indians are evil men who will harm you, just as New England was Judge not a man's deeds or thoughts, only let him judge you. Keep silence when in the meetinghouse with men. Look to your father, brother or master for guidance. Milk will curdle and butter will turn to wool if you are a witch.
