Basically Mary agrees, under duress, to tell the truth. In her deposition, Mary says the whole witchcraft thing is a sham masterminded by a vindictive Abigail. The girls were doing forbidden things in the forest for fun. This proves that children aren't as holy and innocent as the Church would like to believe.
