He shows how he is losing his confidence by saying this specific quote, “I have seen too many frightful proofs in court- the Devil is alive in Salem, and we dare not quail to follow wherever the accusing finger points!”(miller71) Reverend Hale doesn’t like the fact that there is so many accused of witchcraft. He says that we shouldn’t be too quick to judge the person that the finger is pointed at. In the middle of the book Hale is for the first time, second guessing himself, which is different from the beginning of the book.
