"...another reason I'm intrigued with the hanged of Salem, especially the women, is that a number of them aroused suspicion in the first place because they were financially independent, or sharp-tongued, or kept to themselves.

The sad thing is that I stumbled across my error on my own: no one said a word to me. In ten years!

Humbling, isn't it?
