April 14 (April 4, o.s.)

Massachusetts: Jonathan Walcott, father of the afflicted girl Mary Walcott, and his uncle, Salem Village innkeeper Nathaniel Ingersoll, file charges with Salem magistrates John Hathorne and Jonathan Corwin against Elizabeth Proctor and Sarah Cloyce for bewitching Mary Walcott, Ann Putnam, Mercy Lewis, Abigail Williams, and John Indian, the husband of the accused witch Tituba.

Meanwhile, Abigail Williams, who has recently accused Elizabeth Proctor of afflicting her several times, accuses her husband John as well.  She claims to see his specter along with hers and says to it “Are you come, too?  You can pinch as well as your wife.”
