Colonial Justice in Western Massachusetts, 1639-1702: The Pynchon Court Record, an Original Judges' Diary of the Administration of Justice in the Springfield Courts in the Massachusetts Bay Colony

Front Cover
"...The Diary is also a colorful record of the mores of that colonial community [Springfield, Massachusetts Bay Colony]. Witchcraft, juvenile delinquency, bootlegging--they are all there. "Follies and foibles; prejudices and petty quarrels; crimes and misdemeanors; jealousies, hopes, and fears--the Diary runs the gamut of human frailties and human passions"--Foreword.
