Branwell is in the full grip of insanity. He has been in town
START: Don’t go. They are trying to poison me. My sisters, they did it before but I would not eat what they gave me.
END: To go elsewhere, were it not to the Devil. (Suddenly frantic, as if the Devil were about to enter the house.) He is following me. I saw him just now in the town.
