The Twenty-eighth Spirit in Order, as Solomon bound them, is named Berith. He is a Mighty, Great and Terrible Duke. He hath two other Names given unto him by men of later times, viz.: Beale or Beal and Bofry or Bolfry. He appeareth in the form of a Soldier with Red Clothing, riding upon a Red Horse, and having a Crown of Gold upon his head. He giveth true answers, Past, Present and to Come. Thou must make use of a Ring in calling him forth, as is before spoken of regarding Beleth. He can turn all metals into Gold. He can give Dignities and confirm them unto Man. He speaketh with a very clear and subtle Voice. He is a Great Liar and not to be trusted unto. He governeth 26 Legions of Spirits. His Seal is this, etc.
