Excerpt from New Englands Prospect: A True, Lively, and Experimental Description of That Part of America, Commonly Called New England

Selfe; whereby they shall bee able to out-face the keenest fanges of a blacke mouth'd Momus. For from hence the world may conclude, that either there was some worth in the booke, that caused so wise a person to looke upon it, and to vouchsafe to owne it, or else if they suppose that in charity be fostered it, as being a poore helplesse brat, they may thence learne to do so likewise. If here I should take upon me the usual straine of a soothing Epistolizer, I should (though upon better grounds than many) sound forth a full mouth'd encomiastiche of your incomparable worth: but though your deserts may justly challenge it, yet I know your vertuous modesty would not thanke me for it and indeed your owne actions are the best Heralds of your own praise, which in spite of envy it selfe must speake you Wise, and truly Noble: and I for my part, if I may but present any thing, which either for its profit or delight may obtaine your favorable approbation, I have already reaped the harvest of my expectation; onely I must desire you to pardon my bold presumption, as thus to make your well deserving name, the frontispeece to so rude and ill deserving frame. Thus wishing a con?uence of all blessings both of the throne, and foot-stoole, to be multiplied upon your selfe, and your vertuous Consort, my very good Lady, together with all the Stemmes of your Noble family, I take my leave and rest.
