FIRST SETTLERS OF THAT COUNTRY,
COLLECTED AND ARRANGED, FROM AUTHENTIC S0CRCE9 OF INFORMATION,
By JEDIDIAH MORSE, D. D. And Rev. ELIJAH PARISH, A.M.
Printed by William Burton, Fetter Lane,
The reputation acquired by this work in America, has induced the publisher to presume that it would be an acceptable addition to English Literature; and although it must be allowed that the work is more particularly interesting to the inhabitants of those parts of North America (o which it immediately refers, yet, as that part of the globe was first settled, under vtry remarkable circumstances by refugees from this country, it cannot fail of interesting, in a most lively manner, those persons who have paid any attention to that part of English History which relates iheir expulsion from their native land; nor can it be read without sentiments of the warmest gratitude to divine providence by those who compare t.he the nstale of religious intolerance with the present freedom from persecution, which has «o gloriously signalized the reign of the House of Brunswick.
