I'm not sure exactly what you mean by abroad. Parris calls Rev. Hale in to protect his own reputation. Parris believes Hale’s investigation will result in a finding against witchcraft–as did a witchcraft investigation by Hale in a nearby town–and thereby protect Parris from charges that witchery exists under his own roof.
