Go to Bed

CRUCBL-OGX84I

What does the following conversation between Proctor and Mary Warren best demonstrate about life currently in Salem:

Mary Warren: I am bound by law, I cannot tell it. To Proctor: I only hope you'll not be so sarcastical no more. Four judges and the King's deputy sat to dinner with us but an hour ago. I - I would have you speak civilly to me, from this out.

Proctor, in horror, muttering in disgust at her: Go to bed. Mary Warren, with a stamp of her foot: I'll not be ordered to bed no more, Mr. Proctor! I am eighteen and a woman, how-ever single!

Proctor: Do you wish to sit up? Then sit up. Mary Warren: I wish to go to bed! Proctor, in anger: Good night, then! Mary Warren: Good night.
