Beth Gregory, you are being taken into custody for you have been accused of witchcraft.
This will be further discussed and evaluated in court in three days.
Oh, thank goodness!
Beth! Stand up! The county jail hereby releases you unto your home until your court date appearance on May 12.
Beth and her neighbor Mary are talking about the incident. Mary was shocked to hear such a confusing thing happen.
When we get back inside with your parents, I can tell you!
An idea sprung to Mary that might just fix the situation.
So Mrs. Gregory, your brother and his wife could house Beth and I In West Virginia after we flee from Salem. That way Beth is safe from being put to death and you can still communicate with her through her aunt and uncle. I will go with her because she will not be safe. I have nobody here anymore so it is okay.
Mary and Beth start in a river entrance in Massachusetts and start boating down towards West Virginia, where Beth's uncle will get them and bring them back to his house.
