From the text:

Enter Mary Warren, breathless. She is seventeen, a subservient, naive, lonely girl.

Mary Warren: What’’ll we do? The village is out! I just come from the farm; the whole country’’s talkin’’ witchcraft! They’’ll be callin’’ us witches, Abby!

Mercy, pointing and looking at Mary Warren: She means to tell, I know it.

Mary Warren: Abby, we’’ve got to tell. Witchery’’s a hangin’’ error, a hangin’’ like they done in Boston two year ago! We must tell the truth, Abby! You’’ll only be whipped for dancin’’, and the other things!

Abigail: Oh,-we’’ll be whipped!

Mary Warren: I never done none of it, Abby. I only looked!
