Sept. 1 during a time of religious service, was saved only by the Chap. XII.} 1675. daring of Goffe, the regicide, now bowed with years, a heavenly messenger of rescue, who darted from his hiding-place, rallied the disheartened, and, having achieved a safe defence, sunk away into his retirement, to be no more seen. The plains of Northfield were wet with the blood of Beers, and twenty of his Sept. valiant associates. As Lathrop's company of young men, the very flower of the young men of Essex, all culled out of the towns of that county, were conveying the harvests of Deerfield to the lower towns, Sept. 18. they were suddenly surrounded by a horde of Indians; and, as each party fought from behind trees, the victory was with the far more numerous savages.
