The Salem Tribune
The most pressing information arises!
Betty not to make a sound!
The sovereign daughter of Sir Parris, Betty, does not stir. She is claimed to be disturbed somehow. Tituba is one of the lesser to admit, that she had worked once with the devil. Will Betty wake? Will her short eternity of exhaustion deliver tragedy? The townsmen and women cannot foresee. It is a fact that the perturbed people greet unusual occurrences such as this with uncertainty and punish those who present themselves guilty. The providence of which these persons reside is corrupted with fear and fear in itself is much enough to bury the innocent. These actions are not cruel, only necessary as to what the supernatural findings have purposed.
Abigail stirs up tension in the Parris family, a deadly deed, surely!
Abigail Williams, a woman of rather loose morals and a pretentious habit of neglecting honesty, has now met herself with Reverend Parris in a verbal quarrel concerning her activities in the forest. In which it concerns, dancing among a fire, some wailing, some naked, some singing or chanting a song that only that of Tituba knows. She is a sovereign woman of her white counterparts and loyal as to who she submisses herself. It is said unusually, that Tituba had conjured up spirits out of the darkness with her songs, and any woman would point a finger at the other to avoid being hanged.
Misconceived as witchcraft is but a temporary feit of indecent behaviors.
The children are disturbed, surely, they are, but now Abigail speaks of lesser things to compromise the hearty man of Sir Parris! He had made such efforts to attain the loyalty of his noble followers, and now in this fearful corrupted place, Abby speaks no truth. No woman has the heart hard enough to endure the consequence of witchcraft, no woman can be ridden of her sinful pride as to who she protects in Salem. Abby be not a woman of good nature, yet, she be whiter than most. What is it that brings to Sir Parris the realization of his poor disturbed daughter perhaps being dead?
Betty once flew? What a silly lie to tell!
It sees itself a great lie and exaggeration of one's imagination to witness a flying child in plain day. Who sees such a thing and not think himself redundant? What a ridiculous assumption! Goody Putnam must be relieved. She has spoken with Sir Parris on this occasion and relays to him her reassurance. In this town, the sinful are marked dead in their eyes by the devil and sentenced. The touch of the devil is sure death, says Goody Putnam to Sir Parris. Her daughter Ruth has been marked and she is dying. Is Betty met with the same predicament?
Ruth is disturbed, death must be taking her.
She refused to eat, she refused to listen, she refused to speak. Ruth is not but a hollow shell of herself, a walking corpse, nonetheless. She will look blankly at what she sees and not speak of it. Has the devil taken her soul? She is surely not well. What is the predicament in which these young girls find themselves? More travesty indeed will come upon this cold town and eat it with angry eyes.
Goody Putnam is surely taken.
Does she claim her children to be murdered? Seven of them were laid to rest at birth, a tragic predicament, indeed. She claims her daughter Ruth to have come in close contact with their spirits, and to this she says it is a work of the devil. Mercy, a servant to Goody Putnam, advices to beat the devil out of them, it'll wake them from their trance for a quick moment. But is there surely a cure to this supernatural illness?
