English term or phrase:witch's prayer
Dudo del significado exacto de dicho término en el contexto que viene a continuación. No sé si habría que entenderlo como si fuera un "spell" o si podría ser un "libro de brujería" o incluso algo más. Éste es el contexto:
"I DOUBT not but the title of this book will amuse some of my reading friends a little at first; they will make a pause, perhaps, as they do at a witch's prayer, and be some time a resolving whether they had best look into it or no, lest they should really raise the Devil by reading his story."
