Elementary School Teacher
Towards the end of chapter 10, Chillingsworth says the source of Dimmesdale's illness is his soul, not his body. Although Chillingsworth himself admits that he is a doctor who deals with the physical, not the soul or the internal, he encourages Dimmesdale to reveal what is hurting him so he may help heal him. On Chillingsworth's part, this is most likely not a noble request, but an attempt from Chillingsworth to gain information from Dimmesdale. Dimmesdale explains to Chillingsworth that he would rather reveal his problems through prayer/to God instead.
