When the audience is introduced to Elizabeth Proctor in Act Two, she is presented as a cold, suspicious wife who has not forgiven her husband for having an affair with Abigail Williams.
Mr Borlase then addressed the jury on the evidence. This closed the case for the defendant. Mr Izard replied on the whole. His Honor summed up the case to the Jury very briefly. He remarked that an attempt had been made on the part of the counsel for the defendant, to prove that the plaintiff Mr Hulke had condoned a previous offence of a similar character to that which was the subject of the present action and that therefore he did not come into court with clean hands on the present occasion.
He the learned Judge considered that the evidence failed to prove that the plaintiff had been aware of his wife s previous guilt, or that he had in any way sanctioned it knowingly.
In fact he appeared to have acted justly throughout. No condonation of other adulteries had been established. It was however for the Jury to determine whether they would award substantial or nominal damages. The levity and flippancy with which he spoke of his own proceedings, as well as of the acts of others not present, was excessively unseemly.
With these remarks he would leave the case in the hands of the Jury. The following were the issues presented to the Jury,— 1. Was the said Ellen Clarissa married at the time of the trespass In the declaration mentioned the wife of the plaintiff.
Did the defendant debauch and carnally known the said Ellen Clarissa as in the declaration mentioned. Were the said Ellen Clarissa and the plaintiff, at the time of the said trespass finally separated from each by agreement between them. Was the plaintiff voluntarily living apart from the said Ellen Clarissa at the time of the said trespass.
Had the plaintiff at the time of the said trespass abandoned the said Ellen Clarissa, and refused to supply her with the means of maintenance and support. To what damages, if any, is the plaintiff entitled. The Court then granted a certificate for a Special Jury. This case closed the Civil Sittings.
