magic signs

Small stones, marked with a swastika, that once were used by the Old Ones and have power against the Deep Ones. According to Zadok Allen, the Deep Ones said "they cud wipe aout the hull brood o' humans ef they was willin' to bother - that is, any as didn't have sarten signs sech as was used onct by the lost Old Ones, whoever they was" [HPL Innsmouth 331]. "Obed he faound the island people all wiped aout between v'yages. Seems the other islanders had got wind o' what was goin' on, and had took matters into their own hands. S'pose they must a had, after all, them old magic signs as the sea things says was the only things they was afeard of. No tellin' what any o' them Kanakys will chance to git a holt of when the sea-bottom throws up some island with ruins older'n the deluge... In some places they was little stones strewed abaout - like charms - with somethin' on 'em like what ye call a swastika naowadays. Prob'ly them was the Old Ones' signs" [333]. The Deep Ones could never be destroyed, even though the paleogean magic of the forgotten Old Ones might sometimes check them [367].

These magic signs somewhat resemble star-stones, except that (1) the magic signs are not described as having any particular shape, whether five-pointed or otherwise, (2) the magic signs are marked with swastikas rather than the eye-and-flame sign found on star stones, and (3) the magic signs are credited to the Old Ones rather than the Elder Gods. "Old Ones" is a term with many meanings, but can possibly be taken as referring to the crinoid Old Ones of Antactica; as these Old Ones are known to have battled the spawn of Cthulhu [HPL Mountains 66, 68], and the Deep Ones are also associated with Cthulhu. (Innsmouth was written Nov.-Dec. 1931, a few months after Mountains Feb.-Mar. 1931.)

Magnalia Christi Americana

By Cotton Mather. A history of early New England, including biographies of many ministers. The book quotes Borellus on the subject of the reanimation of the dead; see Borellus. The book also discusses witchcraft in the Second Book, Chapter XII, Section 16 and in the Sixth Book, Chapter VII (titled Thaumatographia Pneumatica).

The Magnalia includes an anecdote that inspired Carter's story "The Attic Window" [HPL Unnameable 202-204]:

At the southward there was a beast, which brought forth a creature which might pretend to something of an human shape. Now, the people minded that the monster had a blemish in one eye, much like what a profligate fellow in the town was known to have. This fellow was hereupon examined; and upon his examination confess'd his infandous Bestialities; for which he was deservedly executed.
—Magnalia , Book VI, Chapter V, "Historia Nemesios; Relating Remarkable Jedgments of God," in the subsection headed "The Tenth Remark." (Thanks to S. T. Joshi for tracing this reference in the footnotes to his HPL collection, The Dreams in the WitchHouse.)

In a letter to Joseph Curwen, Jebediah Orne referred cryptically to the Magnalia : "But I would have you Observe what was tolde to us aboute tak'g Care whom to calle up, for you are Sensible what Mr. Mather writ in ye Magnalia of ———, and can judge how truely that Horrendous thing is reported." [HPL Case 138]

Richard Upton Pickman said that Cotton Mather knew things he didn't dare put into the Magnalia [HPL Pickman 16].

An old man living in an isolated house in the Miskatonic Valley had a rotting, bulky copy of the Magnalia [HPL Picture 119].

Mene, mene, tekel, upharsin

A Hebrew phrase quoted by Zadok Allen when describing the Dagon cult at Innsmouth [HPL Innsmouth 334, 337]. The reference is from Daniel chapter 5, where the story is told how King Belshazzar mocked the beliefs of the Jews by drinking wine from their sacred vessels at a party and praising the gods of the elements from which the vessels were made; and how a hand suddenly appeared and wrote the phrase mene, mene, tekel, upharsin on the palace wall. The prophet Daniel explained the phrase to mean that Belshazzar had been weighed in the balance and found wanting, and that his kingdom would shortly be taken from him. Zadok may have meant that the Dagon cult was comparable to the Babylonians in terms of its depraved practices and pagan nature.
