Kelly told Dee that seven bundles appeared suddenly "from heavenward." While Michael collected the bundles, Uriel placed "a thing like a superaltare" on the table "and with a thing like a Senser doth make perfume at the fowre corners of the Table."

A "Glorious man" man appeared who unwrapped the bundles on the superaltar, and each bundle contained animals.
