Could someone find 2 quotes from Act 3 from Danforth (see below for more details)

1. When he is questioning mary, and says something about telling the truth would be lying (??)

2. When asked to postpone John's execution, he said something about casting doubt on the previous 12 executions (??)  

Thanks

The second quote you are looking for is actually in Act III. Danforth says, 

             "Now hear me and beguile yourselves no more. I will not receive a single plea for pardon or postponement. Them that will not confess will hang. Twelve are already executed; the names these seven are given out, and the village expects to see them die this morning."

He goes on talking about God's law and the fact that if they were to postpone, people might question the executions that have already happened.

He meant that the quote was in the IV Act.
