Reverend Parris has sent for Reverend Hale from Beverly so that he can confirm that there is nothing supernatural going on with his daughter Betty. The town doctor says that there might be something wrong with her that medicine can not fix, and by this he means witchcraft or the devil. Reverend Parris is frantic to make sure and confirm that Betty has a normal sickness and has not been involved with witchcraft.

Parris also says that he witnessed a person running naked through the woods and that he saw a dress lying next to the fire.
