Take a goblet or cup full of hot water and three chairs in which three girls or women of the same age must sit. Each must take a pinch of salt and put it into the boiling water all together at once. The one whose salt dissolves first will be the most fortunate. Then each must take a little bag of red wooden stuff full of ashes that have been very finely sifted; let them sit with the cup in the middle all three clad in black with black veils, and each with a sacred wafer taken from communion. Each shall throw her ashes with the wafer into the boiling water and say:
I do not throw the ashes,
But I throw the wafer.
I do not throw the wafer,
But I throw the body and soul of [Name]
That he may no more have peace or happiness
Until I have obtained this my desire!
Then they must place their hands behind them, and not turn round to see the cup for a quarter of an hour; and when they at last look they will see whether the wafers are floating on the surface. I this case thry will all three have obtained their wish, and if only one swims, then the one whose it is will be favoted; but if none float, no favor will be granted.
