The common People's Notion of Vampires is this, that dead Bodies rife out of tneir Graves and fuck the Blood of People aflcep; after which they conclude, that the Perlbns luck'd become in their turn Vampires 3 and to prevent any ill Effeclsfrom Bodies that are lulpecled to be of this Sorr, they drive a Stake through the Heart , and cut off the Head. Thele fupeittitiou Follies are luppos'd to arife not only from the Ignorance of the Inhabitants of the Bannat, but to the Calamities it at prelent iurYcrs, which occalions Panicks to prevail.
