13 years old begins acting weird and having fits Goodwin s brother also started acting weird 0 Maybe they were just teens maybe it was the mold on grain 0 SO Glover is arrested for bewitching the children Reverend Cotton Mather talks with Glover and she is later hung o 1689 Sam Parris is named new minister of Salem 0 Parris isn t accepted within the community because he s from outside the
