To Regain the Stolen Property (Spell)

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

To Regain the Stolen Property.

Take three crumbs of bread, three pinches of salt, and three very small portions of lard. Then make a strong fire, lay all these nine articles upon it, and speak these words, while remaining alone:

I lay for the thief, bread, salt and lard, upon the flame, for thy sin is hard; I lay it upon thy lung, liver and heart, that thou may feel a bitter smart. It shall come upon thee, need and dread, as it approaches a dire death. All veins shall in thy body burst, and cause thee pain and quenchless thirst; that thou shalt have no peace or rest, till all the theft thou hast returned and place it where thou hast taken the plunder, or be caught by lightning and thunder. + + + Recite three times.

The grimoire Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus lists this spell.
