The narrator is apparently ignorant of the reason for this moonlight ride, but is still disapproving, telling Betty to "put him down again" (l. 18) and saying "There's not a mother, no not one, / But when she hears what you have done, / Oh! Betty she'll be in a fright," (ll. 24-26). In the sixth stanza we learn

    Parris mentioned he has a daughter and he is a widower. However, “Betty Parris’ mother was not dead, but very much alive at the time” (The Crucible: Fact & Fiction Para.5). Betty Parris’ mother really died 4 years after the events had taken place. This fact could have changed the total out-come of Miller’s play.
