Salem is in chaos..... the stock is wandering around, and the people are arguing over the spoils.

Cheever: There be so many cows wanderin’’ the highroads, now their masters are in the jails, and much disagreement who they will belong to now. I know Mr. Parris be arguin’’ with farmers all yesterday - there is great contention, sir, about the cows. Contention make him weep, sir; it were always a man that weep for contention.
