old gray-head man with a great nose which tortored me and almost
Choaked me and urged me to writ in his book: and I asked him
what was his name and from whence he came for I would complaine
of him: and he told me he came from linne and people used to call
him old father pharoah and he said he was my grandfather: for my
father used to call him father: but I tould I would not call him:
grandfather: for he was a wizzard and I would complaine of him:
and ever sence he hath afflected me by times beating me and pinch-
ing me and all most Choaking me and urging me continewally to
writ in his book
