Rehearse this Exorcism Several times, and when he is appeared then bind him with the bond of spirits, and ask him what Questions you please, & he will Certainly answer you, & also if you Command him any Service according to his Orders and office, he will assuredly answer you and obey you, & perform all things In Bringing what he is Enjoined, And when your Desires are fulfilled, then Licence him to Depart, But Detain him not above an hour or two.
