Cambridge History of American Literature: volume 3 (ed. Trent, William Peterfield, 1862-1939., Erskine, John, 1879-1951., Sherman, Stuart Pratt, 1881-1926., Van Doren, Carl, 1885-1950.), Book III (continued) (search)
e colonies; and Henry Barton Dawson (1821-1889), a turbulent spirit who served history best as editor of The historical magazine. John Romeyn Brodhead (1814-73), whose transcripts have been mentioned, wrote an excellent History of New York, 1609–;1691 (1853-71). He was one of the best esteemed members of the New York group. Two Catholic historians added much to its efficiency: Edward Bailey O'Callaghan (1797-1873) and John Dawson Gilmary Shea (1824-92). The first was an educated Irishman, an economic pamphlets of the seventeenth century that have been preserved are Severals relating to the fund (1682), A discussion and explanation of the bank of credit (1687), and Some considerations on the bills of credit now passing in New England (1691). These were anonymous Massachusetts publications of ephemeral merit. In the eighteenth century there were several well-defined periods of active discussion in Massachusetts, centring respectively about the years 1714, 1720, and 1740. These p

calls her, whom his parish thought by no means a model for her sex, but from whom it finally took three days of solitary fasting and prayer to wean him. He was not the only Puritan minister who bestowed his heart somewhat strangely. Rev. John Mitchell, who succeeded the soul-ravishing Shepard at Cambridge, as aforesaid, married his predecessor's widow on the general recommendation of her, and the college students were greatly delighted, as one might imagine. Rev. Michael Wigglesworth, in 1691, wooed the Widow Avery in a written discourse, which I have seen in manuscript, arranged under twelve different heads,--one of which treats of the prospect of his valuable life being preserved longer by her care. She having children of her own, he offers mysteriously to put some of his own children out of the way, if necessary,--a hint which becomes formidable when one remembers that he was the author of that once famous theological poem, The day of doom, in which he relentingly assigned to
now the precise conditions upon which the separation took place. But the Town record is quite sufficient to establish the fact of separation. The very first entry upon the new Town Book records the doings of the first Town-meeting, held 27, 6, 1679, by virtue of an order of the General Court, at which meeting the first board of Selectmen were duly elected, namely, Captain Thomas Prentice, John Ward, and James Trowbridge; and Thomas Greenwood was chosen Constable. Hist of Newton, page 60. 1691. December 8. In answer to the petition of the inhabitants of Cambridge Village, lying on the south side of Charles River, sometimes called New Cambridge, being granted to be a township, praying that a name may be given to said town, it is ordered, that it be henceforth called New Town. This order of the General Court, for a name only, has been mistaken by historians for the incorporation of the town, whereas the petitioners had been an independent town for twelve years. The child was born on
