"LET THIS ONE BE A DEVIL"
The legend of the Jersey Devil is one not for the faint of heart. Folklore claims that the Leeds family was an eccentric one. Mother Leeds was a witch and Father Leeds was a drunkard, described as the Devil himself. Upon learning of the conception of her 13th child, Mother Leeds exclaimed "let this one be a devil!" As the child grew in her belly, she knew her child would be a special one. Legends say that she purposely performed ghastly spells to ensure the Devil's birth.
On a dark and stormy night in October of 1735, Mother Leeds went into labor. The birth was one of terrible struggle and a physician was called upon to aid the midwife. When the child was born, it was seemingly a perfectly healthy baby boy. Within minutes, much to Mother Leeds excitement, the child began to turn. The changeling suddenly sprouted horns. His head began to morph into that of a goat with terrible Vampirish fangs. Its feet formed into hooves as the fingers on its hands elongated and grew sharp claws. Bat like wings began to expand from his back while a forked tail burst forth from his tailbone.
The midwife stared in amazement as Mother Leeds began laughing hysterically at the creature she had just birthed. Suddenly, the changeling became aware of his surroundings and turned on the cottage's inhabitants. The first to go was the pour midwife, her throat torn by the creature's razor-sharp claws. The Devil turned to his father next, murdering him in the same hideous manner. Finally, Mother Leeds' own creation of horror turned on his mother, ripping her abdomen to shreds. After the murderous scene unfolded, the monster darted to the fire place and flew out the chimney to wreak havoc on the Pine Barrens area for centuries to come.
As luck would have it, the physician previously called upon to help with the birth had arrived just as the changeling began to turn. He quickly hid inside the cottage's pantry and stole glances to become the only witness to the Devil's birth. His journal entry is below.
