Herrick has been drinking.

Herrick: Why, Mr. Parris command me, sir. I cannot deny him.

Danforth: Are you drunk, Marshal? Herrick: No, sir; it is a bitter night, and I have no fire here.

Danforth, containing his anger: Fetch Mr. Parris. Herrick: Aye, sir. Danforth: There is a prodigious stench in this place. Herrick: I have only now cleared the people out for you. Danforth: Beware hard drink, Marshal.
