Proctor says that he has committed lechery with Abaigail. At first I was non beilevant but after seeing this man weep it, I know now that he is no lie to the court. This tilted the scale for Proctor. But when the court questioned his wife, Elizabeth Proctor, she said no word of it. I even tried to speak up for him, but seeing how even my voice wasn’t being heard I became angered. And once Proctor damned the name of god, I acquitted the court. I have never in my life seen this type of crime. These kids are lying but believed.…
