3 A FAMILY OF WITCHESI ran from Malkin Tower, down the hill into Newchurch. James followed me.'I want to go to Read Hall, too,'he said.We ran through the trees to Sabden Brook. The noise of the river was beautiful in my ears.We went along the river to the village of Sabden, and then it began to rain.Suddenly, we heard the noise of horses behind us. We got off the road, and watched the horses.It was Roger Nowell with some of his men. They saw us, and Mr Nowell stopped.'It' s the Device children,' he said.' What's your name, child?''My name is Jennet,' I said.'We're going to Read Hall. I want to talk to you.'Roger Nowell looked at me with his warm brown eyes.'Very well,'he said.'Come home with me, and we can talk.'
