Three stones must be charmed by the hands of a wise fairy doctor, and cast by his hand, saying as he does so—

"The first stone I cast is for the head in the mad fever; the second stone I cast is for the heart in the mad fever; the third stone I cast is for the back in the mad fever.

"In the name of the Trinity, let peace come. AMEN."
