Herefordshire folklore

I’ve been to the Museum and Art Gallery of Hereford and there was a section on local folklore. 

Curse doll and curse found in a crevice of the brickword at 21 East Street, Hereford. The curse was found within the folds of the dolls dress. It reads: 

” Mary Ann Ward. I act this spell on you from my holl heart wishing you to never rest nor eat nor sleep the rester part of your life. I hope your flesh will waste away and I hope you will never spend another another penny I ought to have. Wishing this from my whole heart. “
