A NEW WORLD GRIMOIRE
In the work, The Long-Lost Friend, Johann George Hohman details some of the traditional customs and folk magic of the early German-speaking immigrants to Pennsylvania, AKA the Pennsylvania Dutch, and the “pow-wow” healers of the area. While not hoodoo, it is still similar enough in content to be useful and informative to one of a more southerly magic practicing persuasion. Above and beyond that, it stands on its own as being the authoritative guide to magical practices in the area and as Amazon puts it, “the most famous book of magic written in America.” Definitely worth a read, if not an instant addition to your occult library. Here’s an excerpt for making a thief return what he has stolen:
“Oh, thief, I bind you by the first nail, which I drive into thy skull and. thy brain, to return the goods thou hast stolen to their former place; thou shalt feel as sick and as anxious to see men, and to see the place you stole from, as felt the disciple Judas after betraying Jesus. I bind thee by the other nail, which I drive into your lungs and liver, to. return the stolen goods to their former place; thou shall feel as sick and as anxious to see men, and to see the place you have stolen from, as did Pilate in the fires of hell. The third nail I shall drive into thy foot, oh thief, in order that thou shalt return the stolen goods to the very same place from which thou hast stolen them. Oh, thief, I bind thee and compel thee, by the three holy nails which were driven through the hands and feet of Jesus Christ, to return the stolen goods to the very same place from which thou hast stolen them. The three nails, however, must be greased with the grease from an executed criminal or other sinful person.”
