Mr. Proctor, can you please recite the commandments
What that last one..umm?
Adultery John, Adultery .
A week after John Proctor came home, his wife Elizabeth urged him to tell Ezekiel Cheever, that Abigail admitted Betty's sickness had nothing to do with witchcraft. However, Proctor thought no one would believe him since they were alone in the room.
Abigail said it had nothing to do with WITCHCRAFT.
There are already to many witnesses.
I am innocent!!
Mary Warren , who had been an official of the court for the trial, came back and gave Elizabeth a doll. When Elizabeth and Proctor were arguing she told them 39 women had been arrested and Elizabeth had been mentioned at the court.
John Hale had came to visit the Proctors. He told them that Rebecca Nurse was charged for killing Putnam's babies. Reverend Hale had also came because,Elizabeth had been mentioned in the court and found the Proctors suspicious. He questioned Proctor about going to church and to recite his commandments. Proctor remembered nine of the ten, but Elizabeth reminded him of the missing one - adultery.
You MUST testify in court!!
Proctor told Hale that Abigail and him had a conversation, but Hale dismissed it because there were so many people who had confessed to witchcraft. Hale emphasized to proctor that if people did not confess, they would die for their sins. Elizabethhad denied all accusations of witchcraft against her .
Soon after Hale visited their house Cheever arrived with a warrant and for Elizabeth, because Abigail accused Elizabeth of being stabbed with a needle using a puppet. Proctor had done everything he could to stop Cheever.Mary had admitted that Abigail saw her making the puppet in the court ,but Cheever still took Elizabeth away.
Proctor was furious,he didn't want Elizabeth to die because he didn't tell the truth . He ordered Mary to go to court and testify against Abigail.
