Proctor gives Danforth a testament stating that Rebecca Nurse and Martha Corey are good, upright  women. Ninety-one people have signed the document. Parris argues that the court should summon  these people because they question the court. Francis Nurse is upset because he himself promised  them that no reprisal would come for from signing the document. Danforth reads Giles Corey's deposition. Thomas Putnam is brought into the room. Corey accuses  Putnam of prompting his daughter to falsely accuse George Jacobs of witchcraft. Corey claims that  Putnam wants Jacobs to hang, because anyone hung for witchcraft loses all property rights. Putnam  is the only person in Salem who can afford to purchase Jacobs' land once it becomes available.  Putnam denies the charge and Danforth requires proof from Corey. Corey refuses to name the  individual who overheard Putnam. The court arrests Corey for contempt of court.
