The town officals—Mayor Ty-
son, Tappercoom, and the cha-
plain—are confronted with the
problem of whether or not to burn
a young and lovely enchantress,
Jennet Jourdemayne. The super-
stitious townspeople are insistent
but the law-makers hesitate, smit-
ten by Jennet's charm.

of these simple Cool Clarians, a
former soldier, Thomas Mendip,
makes his grand entrance through
the courtroom window and ex-
presses a desire to be hanged.
While Mendip and the witch
wrangle with Mayor Tyson, Ali-
son Eliot, the village lie'.le, is wooed
by three young Englishmen.
