Adopt a New Acquisition

Things That Go Bump in the Night

The mowing-Devil, or, Strange news out of Hartford-Shire... London?, 1678

Adopt for: $2,500

The mowing-Devil, or, Strange news out of Hartford-Shire… [No place]: 1678.

Miracles, mysteries and so-called urban legends are always good for business, and in this case, for one’s faith, too. For to the person reporting the ‘Mowing-Devil of Hartford-shire’, this peculiar event serves as an argument for the existence of God. His reasoning is the following: The events in Hertfordshire, in the east of England, indubitably prove that "there are certainly such things as Devils," who "necessarily… have a Hell; and as there is a Hell, there must be a Heaven, and consequently a God."
