We will have to bring in Goody Proctor to verify your statement, Mr. Proctor.
I John Proctor, confess lechery with Abigail. It was several months ago but I can't keep hiding my sin. I've regretted it since the moment it happened. You can even ask my wife, Elizabeth. She knows about mine and Abigail's affair. She can confirm it. Aye! She is no liar.
Elizabeth, your husband has confessed to lechery with Abigail. Are you able to verify this statement?
No, my John has never done such a thing. I will not nor can verify this statement.
Why is she lying? This makes me seem like a liar. Did Abigail get to her before the court was able to?
I will not ever confess to witchcraft. I am no witch. I will not confess to something I am not just to live. I would rather die for the truth than lie to survive.
Go to your husband, Elizabeth. Get him to sign the paper, so he shall live.
I shall not! He is finally at peace with himself and I will not take that away from him. He will not live to please others, that's just not the man he is.
What I am doing is straight from my heart. Its who I am.
