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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
