These following Stories I had from my very good Friend Mr. W. Allen of London, who will if occasion be, satis∣fie any concerning the truth of them: By which as well as by some of the former may be seen, that the Devill doth extraordinarily act in and by many of the Quakers.
A Prayer added only for their help that need it.
