leonora Johanna Von Merlau, or, as Sewall the Quaker Historian gives it, Von Merlane, a noble young lady of Frankfort, seems to have held among the Mystics of that city very much such a position as Anna Maria Schurmaus did among the Labadists of Holland. William Penn appears to have shared the admiration of her own immediate circle for this accomplished and gifted lady. Note 13, page 330. Magister Johann Kelpius, a graduate of the University of Helmstadt, came to Pennsylvania in 1694, with of Egbert Hemskerck the old), in which William Penn and others—among them Charles II., or the Duke of York—are represented along with the rudest and most stolid class of the British rural population at that period. Hemskerck came to London from Holland with King William in 1689. He delighted in wild, grotesque subjects, such as the nocturnal intercourse of witches and the temptation of St. Anthony. Whatever was strange and uncommon attracted his free pencil. Judging from the portrait of Pen

Samuel Rolph joined the church 3 Oct. 1710, Woodbridge. Joseph Rolf was constable, 1696. Joseph Rolph was on town committee (with general powers like board of selectmen) in 1706. In 1701 he was on committee of eleven—named as the following influential men, to negotiate with Rev. Mr. Shepard for ordination as their minister. [He was millwright, of Woodbridge, 1706.] Benjamin Rolph's lands are named in a description by boundaries in 1714. Benjamin Rolph and Margaret Hollon (probably Holland) were married 2 Dec. 1703. Their daughter Rebecca was born 26 Sept. 1704. Their son Benjamin, born 1 Jan. 1706-07. Henry Rolph, in Sept. 1716, unites with nine others, inviting Rev. Mr. Vaughan of the Church of England, to hold services on the Sabbath-days, on account of differences with Rev. Mr. Wade, so that they cannot joyn with him in the worship of God, as Xtians ought to do. In 1714 Henry Rolfe was one of the four trustees of School lands. [Harry Rolfe's lot, in Cambridge, is m

ach all necessary measures for receiving him are taken. The Federal general Brown sends back part of his stores, and locks up the remainder in Fort No. 1; during the entire night people have been at work building carriages for the purpose of mounting the pieces of cannon which were in the place; all the convalescents request to be supplied with arms, and under the direction of the medical corps they organize a battalion which receives the appropriate appellation of the Quinine Brigade; General Holland, on his part, hastily calls back his militia, and all those who are able eagerly respond to this appeal. On the morning of the 8th the Federals have fifteen hundred men under arms. The enemy does not keep them waiting long, for he marches quickly and with confidence, expecting to find a prey easy to capture. He has deployed his forces on the prairie, his centre on foot, his two wings mounted. His approach is reported about ten o'clock in the morning. The Federals fall at once into

Once he indulged his vanity in a public discussion, and, when the argumful members of the poor, persecuted flock of Christ, despairing of rest in England, resolved to seek safety in exile.

At a time when Germany was the battle-field for all Europe in the implacable wars of religion; when even Holland was bleeding with the anger of vengeful factions; when France was still to go through the fearful struggle with bigotry; when England was gasping under the despotism of intolerance almost half a century before William Penn became an American proprietary; and two years before Descartes founded modern philosophy on the method of free reflection,—Roger Williams asserted the great doctrine of intellectual liberty. It became his glory to found a state upon that principle, and to stamp himself u

The changes that were taking place on the banks 167??? of the Hudson, had excited discontent; the rumor of wealth to be derived from the fertility of the south, cherished the desire of emigration; and almost within a year from the arrival of the first fleet in Ashley River, two ships came with Dutch emigrants from New York, and were subsequently followed by others of their countrymen from Holland. Hewat, l. 73. More definite, Dalcho, p. 12. Ramsay, i. 4, errs in his date. The voyage was in 1671, not in 1674. Imagination already regarded Carolina as the chosen Chap XIII.} spot for the culture of the olive; and, in the region where flowers bloom every month in the year, forests of orange-trees were to supplant the groves of cedar; silkworms to be fed from plantations of mulberries and choicest wines to be ripened under the genial influences of a nearly tropical sun. For this
