A spoken *charm for curing burns and scalds has been recorded from various parts of England. The Shropshire version ran:
   There was three angels came from the west, The one brought fire and the other brought frost, The other brought the book of Jesus Christ. In the name of Father, Son and Holy Ghost, Amen. (Burne, 1883: 183-4)
   From Fittleworth (Sussex), there is more information about the associated ritual. The words, there called a 'blessing', could only be used on a Sunday evening by one particular woman, who would bow her head, blow on the burn, and murmur:
   There came two Angels from the north, One was fire and one was Frost.
   Out, Fire; in, Frost. In the name of Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
(Latham, 1878: 35-6)
