Background

A description of the experience

As quoted in Wonders In The Sky - Unexplained Aerial Objects From Antiquity To Modern Times - and Their Impact on Human Culture, History, and Beliefs - Jacques Vallee and Chris Aubeck

A woman named Alison Pearson confessed that she had met with the "Good Neighbors," who had given her a salve that could cure every disease. She had seen a man clad in green, who was accompanied by many men and women making merry with good cheer and music, and she was carried away by them. She was tried and put to death in 1586, although she had treated the Archbishop of Saint Andrews, who stated he had received benefit from it.
