A slave from Barbados took some Puritan girls into the woods to dance.
They got caught by one of their dads - Reverend Parris. When they got home, his daughter got really sick; it must have been caused by something in the woods. Now he's afraid that his reputation will be ruined in town. (Great dad, huh?)
In order to protect his "reputation", Parris invited a guy who claims to know about witches into town to clear his name. The guy's name is Reverend Hale. He tries, but he really knows very little about witches.
One of the girls, Abby, has secretly slept with a married man in town, but now the man, John Proctor, is trying to make up with his wife and is totally ignoring her. She's really ticked off.
Abby also has threatened all of her friends to be quiet about her affair. They do what she says because they're afraid of her.
That's it for now. See you in class Monday. -Miss White
