Two spells to make an obstinate man leave London were two of the spells that Vinculus obtained from Gilbert Norrell via John Childermass [20], and later sold to Jonathan Strange at Monk Gretton along with the spell titled "One Spell to Discover what My Enemy is doing Presently"[22].

One of the spells will make the obstinate man believe that he will find happiness in the countryside; the other will make him believe that every churchyard is haunted by the ghosts that are buried there and every bridge is haunted by the suicides who have jumped from it, until he is too afraid to pass either a bridge or church. Since in London the bridges are only about a hundred yards apart and the churches considerably less, this is a major inconvenience.
