To compel a Thief to return the Stolen Property (Spell)

From Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus, Joseph H. Peterson edition:

To compel a Thief to return the Stolen Property.

Obtain a new earthen pot with a cover, draw water from the under current of a stream while calling out the three holiest names. Fill the vessel one-third, take the same to your home, set it upon the fire, take a piece of bread from the lower crust of a loaf, stick three pins into the bread, boil all in the vessel, add a few dew nettles. Then say: Thief, male or female, bring my stolen articles back, whether thou art boy or girl; thief, if thou art woman or man, I compel thee, in the name. + + +
