The famous Mr. John Eliot, having business with my uncle, spent the of the Province: both the Major and his friend Eliot being great sticklers for the rights and libernd seditious doctrines charged upon it, said Mr. Eliot, but for the book itself, rightly taken, ande time, Rebecca found means to draw the good Mr. Eliot into some account of his labors and journeyshis enchantments and witcheries. I asked Mr. Eliot whether he did know of any women who were Pouffer all manner of hardships. There was, Mr. Eliot told us, a famous Powah, who, coming to Punkg, or spake the right words; which coming to Mr. Eliot's ear, he made him confess, in the presence some further discourse, our guests left us, Mr. Eliot kindly inviting me to visit his Indian congra very bright and pretty Indian girl, one of Mr. Eliot's flock, of the Natick people.

tribe was almost wholly destroyed by the great pestilence of 1612. In 1674 they had but two hundred and fifty males in the whole tribe. Their chief sachem lived opposite the falls; and it was in his wigwam that the historian, in company with John Eliot, the Indian missionary, held a meeting for worshippe on ye 5th of May, 1676, where Mr. Eliot preached from ye twenty-second of Matthew.

The white visitants from Concord and Woburn, pleased with the appearance of the place and the prospect it afforded for planting and fishing, petitioned the General Court for a grant of the entire tract of land now embraced in the limits of Lowell and Chelmsford. They made no account whatever of the rights of the poor Patuckets; but, considering it a comfortable place to accommodate God's people upon, were doubtless prepared to deal with the heathen inhabitants as Joshua the son of Nun did with the Jebusites and Perizzites, the Hivites and the Hittites, of old. The Indians, however, found a friend

John Eliot, the apostle to the Indians, describes in a letter a singular event that occurred at Sherman's Pond in June, 1676. Somnary work The missionary labors of young Mayhew among the Indians at Martha's Vineyard antedate those of the Apostle John Eliot, whose first essay in preaching to the Indians was made in a hut near the falls of Charles River, opposite Watertown orIndians for the land within the bounds of Watertown, Cambridge, and Boston.

There are six parishes of the same name in England, from one of which probably the name was taken. Perhaps the best claim can be made for Waltham-Abbey, called also Waltham Holy Cross, a market town and parish of the County of Essex, twelve miles N. by E. from London, on the left bank of the river Lea, to which place belongs Nasing, the birthplace or home of the Rev. John Eliot, and other early settlers of New England. It is a large, irregular town, situated near the Lea, which is here separated into divers streams, and skirted by low meadows, which have been long celebrated for the succulent and nourishing qualities of the grass. The Convent of Waltham was originally founded about A. D. 1020, by Tovi, (Stallere or Standard-bearer to Canute the Dane, King of England), who built a hunting-seat in the forest, The original great forest which extended, in

The expeditions of the Cabots, though they had Chap. III.} revealed a continent of easy access, in a temperate zone, had failed to discover a passage to the Indies; and their fame was dimmed by that of Vasco de Gama, whose achievement made Lisbon the emporium of Europe. Thorne and Eliot, of Bristol, visited Newfoundland probably in 1502; in that year, savages in their wild attire were exhibited to the king; but North America as yet invited no colony, for it promised no sudden wealth, while the Indies more and more inflamed commercial cupidity. In March, 1501, Henry VII. granted an exclusive privilege of trade to a company composed half of Englishmen, half of Portuguese, with leave to sail towards any point in the compass, and the incidental right to inhabit the regions wh

The removal of the yoke of soul-oppression, —to use the words in which, at a later ay, he confirmed his early view,—as it will prove an act of mercy and righteousness to the enslaved nations, so it is of binding force to engage the whole and every interest and conscience to preserve the common liberty and peace. R. Williams's Hireling Ministry, 29. The same magistrates who punished Eliot, the 1634 Nov. 27. apostle of the Indian race, for censuring their measures, could not brook the independence of Williams; and the circumstances of the times seemed to them to justify their apprehensions. An intense jealousy was excited in England against Massachusetts; members 1634 Dec. of the Generall Court received intelligence of some episcopal and malignant practises against the country; and the magistrates on the one hand were scrupulously careful to avoid all unnecessary offence to

Civil freedom was safe under the shelter of masculine morality; and beggary and crime could not thrive in the midst of severest manners. From the first, the minds of the yeomanry were kept active by the constant exercise of the elective franchise; and, except
