[340] The first of these extracts is from Rev. Francis Higginson's ‘True Relation of the Last Voyage to New England, written from New England, July 24, 1629,’ reprinted in Young's ‘Chronicles of the First Planters of the Colony of Massachusetts Bay:’ Boston, 1846 (pp. 235-237). The second is from the same work: (Young, pp. 232-235). The third is from ‘New England's Plantation; or, A Short and True Description of the Commodities and Discommodities of that Country,’ by Francis Higginson: London, 1630: (Young, pp. 242-256). This pamphlet attracted so much attention, that three distinct editions of it were published in a year.

The next two passages are from ‘Life and Letters of John Winthrop’ (vol. II. pp. 15-16, 64-65). The last passage is from the ‘Memoirs of Captain Roger Clap:’ (Young, pp. 351-354).
