Around 9:30-10:00 PM Journey is being represented in the picture by the road. The traveler was about 50 years old. Same rank of life as the Goodman Brown Had a resemblance in expression more then features Could be taken as father and son.


The Traveler blends in with the others such as with the clothing, even at the governors dinner table or at the king Williams court


The staff that the travelers is holding is represented by the bible in the genesis section with Adam and eve.
Goodman Brown is telling himself its not the same serpent from Adam and Eve.

Adam and eve story Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? Genesis 3:2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: Genesis 3:3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. Genesis 3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: Genesis 3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. Genesis 3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. Genesis 3:7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.


The traveler is offering to leave the path of innocence.

Leave his faith


Goodman brown is having second thoughts because he has gone as farther then he wanted to, into the evil domain.
Having issues with what the traveler is asking him to do.


The traveler thinks its funny that Goodman Brown doesn't want to continue.
Being like the snake in the bible the traveler is trying to persuade Goodman Brown to continue on the path of evil.

They are barley starting on the journey


Goodman knows its wrong but his curiosity is overpowering making him continue to walk.
His ancestors never suede into temptation that Goodman knew of at least Goodman is wondering if he was the first one to turn to the path of evil.


The traveler Is asking Are you sure they are the people that you think they are? His family knows Evil has been


The grandfather is Referenced to the Salem witch trials The father has been referenced to the King Phelps war The traveler knew both of them every well and journeying on the evil path many times and always returned happy Because of the ancestors the traveler would be happy to keep the relationship going


Goodman Brown was if it were to be true that his ancestor were behind all that he is happy that it was never made public in any way.
He wouldnt be happy if they had to be driven out because of a rumor They are church people that believe on there faith and dont tolerate any evil.


Evil or not the traveler is quite familiar in new England.

Many well known towns folk have relations with the devil. Evil has no bounds being everywhere even the hierarchy


Goodman is surprised that evil can be present in many places

The traveler Doesn't care that the governor and counseled men have evil ways or due evil things because no one has the power over the him If I continue on this path how cant I feel guilty Goodman He would be nervous on the holly days and lecture days


The traveler is laughing at Goodman because Goodman would be nervous around the church.
The snake is laughing as well


The traveler is laughing at the excuses that Goodman is creating in order to not go one with the path of evil.


Upset that his excuses are not working so now he's trying to using his wife and religion as an excuse.
Doesn't want to hurt his faith or his wife so he rather to harm himself.


If it dose hurt them then you can go back . There is a woman in front of them So he will not trade 20 souls for one.


Goodman recognizes the woman that is walking she was the one to teach him catechism
The so called witch Goody Cloys is so far in to the path of evil With Goodman's permission the traveler wanted to avoid the Christian woman by going deeper into the woods

Since you dont know her then she would be asking who the travelers is with and if he was staying with them
