Chronicles of events and occurrences which happened to the inhabitants of those towns in New England Which began to be settled during the first half century after the landing of the Pilgrim Fathers at Plymouth, have become almost universal. The reminiscences furnished by these local histories are interesting to the present generation on several accounts. They afford us the means of comparing the hardships, trials and privations en dured by our progenitors, with the ease, comforts and abundance enjoyed by us; a comparison, which may well reconcile us to the tri?ing inconveniences and molestations we too often permit to makeius discontented. A kind of melancholy pleasure is afforded by contemplating the courage with which they met, the fortitude with which they sustained, and the patience with which they endured the dan gers, difficulties and destitutions to which they were constantly exposed. They will also furnish the future historian with materials for a more general, comprehensive and philosophical narrative.
