Danforth tells Proctor that his wife asserts she is pregnant,and offers to let Elizabeth go free until she has delivered. Even so, John cannot in good conscience drop his charge of fraudulence against the court.
Danforth is asking him to give up any further attempt to show that the proceedings are fraudulent. Proctor must again make the difficult decision to either remain uninvolved or do what he can to make the truth known.

Deputy Governor Danforth informs John Proctor with the news that his wife, Elizabeth, is pregnant. He tells Proctor, "This morning, your wife send me a claim in which she states that she is pregnant now" but "There be no sign of it--we have examined her body." Danforth tries to strike the following deal with Proctor, provided that his wife is in fact pregnant and "if she begin to show her natural signs", then he will let Elizabeth out of jail until she delivers. In return, Proctor must drop his charges against the court.
