The townspeople of Andover have overthrown the court and will not allow further condemnation; Parris believes that Salem's community will do the same.

Parris: I tell you what is said here, sir. Andover have thrown out the court, they say, and will have no part of witchcraft. There be a faction here, feeding on that news, and I tell you true, sir, I fear there will be riot here.
