A Warning from Priest Rasmussen, Denmark Witch Hunts 1800
I regret to inform you that the following account is extremely biased. What you are about to read catalogues the conquests of Avis Papley, a truly terrible woman who defined sin as we know it. The way this was written shows her as a heroic type, or someone that deserves forgiveness for her actions. I pleaded that this propaganda not be printed and sold anywhere, but as I am holding this copy in my hands, it appears that did not work. For whatever purpose you bought this book for, I guarantee it will not serve. Historically, this book follows the events in the witch’s life quite accurately, but it paints her in such a bright and positive way that I firmly suggest you stay away from. She was a killer, a witch, a sinner, an outlaw, and likely, a reincarnation of the devil.
Continue if you must, but keep in mind how damaging this could be to fellows like me. Read it in terms of studying, never in terms of enjoyment. And never may you agree with the morals that are within this story. Instead, help me to combat this kind of portrayal of witchcraft. Even with this story taking place 2 centuries ago, witches are still roaming, and they have followed us for ages. This must stop.
They let me change the title, so I have that going for the cause. At least the reader can understand what they’re getting into.
