Need help from any Australian members
I'm currently doing research on witch lore. One particular document from the 17th-century has information that I'm looking for. Unfortunately, the material is not available freely online and I can't locate it via my university library. The National Library of Australia apparently has an electronic version of the document, but you can't access it unless you are a citizen. I was hoping that one of our Australian members might be able to access the database for me and email me a copy of the document if it is a PDF. If it's not in PDF, could you just send me screen captures? It is only 8 pages long. Thanks.

How quick do you require it?
I could probably do it in the next few days.
Maybe DT could do it sooner

I would like it as soon as possible if that is doable. However, I can wait if that is more convenient. I need it to finish writing an article I'm working on. I tend to get fidgety if I can't get a hold of a hard to find source that I know will help me complete a paper.

I'll see if I can do it tonight after work.

Why would it look good to a marker?

I've contacted the library directly since it will take so long to get a library card for a citizen (5-10 business days + wait time for the card to arrive). My university's inter-library loan service is down at the moment, so I can't order the document through that service. Hopefully they will make an exception since I'm a student.

I was able to track the document down with the help of the library. I have posted a transcription on my blog. It serves as a good example of the hatred of Quakers in 17th-century Britain and their equation with witches.
