Nat put jack-o-lanterns, that he stole, inside the places where windows would be in William's house. The reason Nat did it was because he felt jealous and betrayed by Kit. His punishment was that he spent about five hours in the stocks, paid a fine of forty shillings, and if he ever entered Wethersfield he would be whipped thirty times.
At Hannah's house, Hannah tells Kit that if she is just marrying William to escape doing work then she is not escaping she is just going from one prison to another. Kit learns that Nat had been visiting Hannah and Prudence.
Before Prudence went to Hannah she was shy, scared, and introverted. After she was with Hannah she is strong, brave, and extroverted. Prudence wants to keep going to Hannah's because she thinks that Hannah is lonely. Prudence was very happy and proud when she wrote for the first time. Kit, Hannah, and Prudence won't be in Hannah's house together again.
