Roger Williams, with all his wise toleration, bequeathed to Rhode Island no suuence was in the relation of the ministers to the Indian wars. Roger Williams, even when banished and powerless, could keep the peace with thnalty bore the appellations of Goodman and Goodwife, and one of Roger Williams's offences was his wishing to limit these terms to those who gaf such submission, in those times. But Governor Endicott and Rev. Mr. Williams resisted stoutly, quoting Paul, as usual in such cases; so Pato find it again at some village in Rhode Island. Thither went Roger Williams and his Baptists; thither went Quakers and Ranters; thither wenem has left on record a statement so broad and noble as that of Roger Williams: To be content with food and raiment,--to mind not our own, but blasphemy against the Christian religion. And yet the mind of Roger Williams was impulsive, erratic, and unstable, compared with theirs; and

From far and near his followers came to see their restored chief, who feelingly said: Now I see the English are my friends and love me; and whilst I live I will never forget this kindness they have showed me. It would be interesting, were I to take the time, to look into the relations of Massasoit with others, especially with Roger Williams; but this has been done by others, particularly in the somewhat imaginative chapter of my old friend, Mr. Butterworth, and I have already said enough. Nor can I paint the background of that strange early society of Rhode Island, its reaction from the stern Massachusetts rigor, and its quaint and varied materials. In that new state, as Bancroft keenly said, there were settlements filled with the strangest and most incongruous elements . . . so that if a man had lost his religious opinio

tors whose memory she cherished with such reverence. The name of Ward occurs first on the roll of Battle Abbey: Seven hundred and ten distinguished persons accompanied William of Normandy to England, among them Ward, one of the noble captains. Her first known ancestor, John Ward, of Gloucester, England, sometime cavalry officer in Cromwell's army, came to this country after the Restoration and settled at Newport in Rhode Island. His son Thomas married Amy Smith, a granddaughter of Roger Williams. Thomas's son Richard became Governor of Rhode Island and had fourteen children, among them Samuel, who in turn became Governor of the Colony, and a member of the Continental Congress. He was the only Colonial governor who refused to take the oath to enforce the Stamp Act. In 1775, in the Continental Congress, he was made Chairman of the Committee of the Whole, which from 1774 to 1776 sat daily, working without intermission in the cause of independence.

Through his mother he was a descendant of Roger Williams. His father was long engaged in the shipping business, and died August 13, 1848. He was a son of Andrew Robeson, a prominent merchant and successful manufacturer of New Bedford. Andrew Robeson established, under many discouragements and di which thinned the ranks of his regiment so sadly on that fatal day. He was shot through his right wrist in this battle, and was sent home on furlough for a time. While at home he received a commission as Captain, bearing date August 10th, vice Williams, killed at Cedar Mountain. He returned before his wound was fully healed, and joined his regiment before the battle of Antietam, in which he took part, rendering good service. He was eminently successful in keeping his men steady in action. H

Once, he said, he had determined to write a poem on the war and character of King Philip, and at that time studied the Indian history and manners, which he thinks highly poetical.
