The clairvoyant department of modern witchcraft is necessarily carried on by a partnership, and one which is not identical with too legendary league with the devil. Two visible persons constitute the firm, for it takes a double team to do the work, and if the amiable gentleman just referred to makes a third in the concern, he is just a silent partner, furnishing the ospital, while his name is not known in the business 

The eleventh article in The New York Tribune's series about astrologers and fortunetellers titled "The Witches of New-York," all written by humorist Mortimer Thomson under his pseudonym "Doesticks."
