Excerpt from A Chronological History of New England, in the Form of Annals: Being a Summary and Exact Account of the Most Material Transactions and Occurrences Relating to This Country, in the Order of Time Wherein They Happened, From the Discovery of Capt. Gosnold, in 1602, to the Arrival of Governor Belcher, in 1730
It is the orderly succession of these transactions and events, as they precisely fell out in time, too much neglected by our historians, that for some years past, I have taken the greatest pains to search and find, even vastly more than in compos ing, and which through a world of difficulty and much expense, I here present you, not in' the spe cions form of a proper history, which admits of artificial ornaments and descriptions to raise the imagination and affections of the reader but of a closer and more naked register, comprising only facts in a chronological epitome, to enlighten the understanding somewhat like the form of Usher's Annals, which a competent historian may. Easily fill up and beautify.
