A letter addressed to Madame Voisin
A letter addressed to Madame Voisin, a 17th-century fortune-teller/witch/poisoner. A young woman begs Voisin to cast a spell on her beloved so he will fall in love with her.
Letters at the time were all of one piece. Writers folded their letters to create envelopes and then sealed them with wax.
The letter was presented in a secret court hearing as evidence against her. The court sentenced her to death by fire in February 1680.
