Dedicated to ALBERT PERKOWSKI, a victim of the greatvampire epidemic:
“In a dissertation by Müller (Leipzig, 1736) we learn, on theauthority of Cluverius and Dannhaverus (Acad. Homilet. p. ii.),that a certain Albertus Pericofcius in Muscovy was wont totyrannize over and harass his subjects in the most unscrupulousmanner. One night when he was absent from home, his wholeherd of cattle, acquired by extortion, perished. On his return hewas informed of his loss, and the wicked man broke out into themost horrible blasphemies, exclaiming, ‘Let him who has slain,eat; if God chooses, let him devour me as well. ‘As he spoke,drops of blood fell to earth, and the nobleman, transformed intoa wild dog,, rushed upon his dead cattle, tore and mangled thecarcasses and began to devour them; possibly he may bedevouring them still (ac forsan hodieque pascitur). His wife, thennear her confinement, died of fear. Of these circumstances therewere not only ear, but also eye witnesses. (Non ab auritistantum, sed et oculatis accepi, quod narro).”
