A Sprained joint.
When a person got any joint sprained he went for the cure to a person who had the cure of the sprain. This person made the sign of the Cross on the sprained part he then said these words
"As Our Saviour was crossing Calvary Hill
His asse's foot he sprained
He alighted and He sinded it
and mended it in Gods own name bone to bone and sinew to sinew
in Gods own name". He rubbed the affected part while saying these words. He repeated this three times (at) on the one occasion and on three successive days. When this was done the cure was complete.
