A good Stomach Plaster for a Bewitched Child (Spell)

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

A good Stomach Plaster for a Bewitched Child.

Take a little of the oil of almonds, a little deer's tallow, as much of rose vinegar and one ounce of caraway seed. All these articles pounded together, put upon a blue paper, and lay it upon the child's stomach.

But before using the plaster, the mother must, after eating supper, cut three pieces of bread thin, while sticking the knife three times through the bread, and put this knife under the child's back during the night. If the child is bewitched, the knife will be rusty all over on the next morning; then take the bread from the knife, put butter thereon, and give it to a black dog to eat, while you must put an old shirt on the child, which, after remaining for three days and three nights upon the child's person, must be taken off and interred with the above mentioned plaster. This has to be done noiselessly, beĀ­fore sunrise, and under an alderwood shrub.

The grimoire Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus lists this spell.
