Question 1 : Explain why you would plead guilty to the 1692 Witchcraft Scandal

Confusion has set upon me after hearing of the devil meddling with my good friend Sarah Osborne . I should have known marrying her manservant was only the beginning of her scandalous ways . Two more girls , both only a year younger than I , started muttering gibberish in the middle of town their muttering keeps thundering louder and louder in my head . Although I am filled with confusion , the madness keeps feeling more familiar to me with each passing day . Perhaps [banner_entry_middle]

my impending guilt is due to jealousy . Why does someone as innocent as me not even get a glance ? Maybe I could have happiness if my specter were to wander at night like the other `witches

The people began accusing their neighbor ‘s spirits of wandering into bedrooms at night , young girls hovering off the ground , and simple devil worship . These were considered the core of the entire problem . But of course , the real reason was simple fear
