their obligations and honest convictions of duty in bringing in their verdicts. They
had sworn to decide according to the law and the evidence. The law under which
they were required to act was laid down with absolute positiveness by the Court.
They were bound to receive it, and to take and weigh the evidence that was admit-
ted, and to their minds it was clear, decisive, and overwhelming, offered by the
persons of good character, and confirmed by a great number of confessions. If it
had been within their province, as it always is declared not to be, to discuss the gen-
eral principles, and set in judgment on the particular penalties of law. it would not
have altered the case, for, at that time, not only the common people, but the wisest
philosophers, supported the interpretation of the law that acknowledged the exis-

tence of witchcraft, and its sanction that visited it with death. Notwithstanding
all this, however, so tender and sensitive were the consciences of the jurors that they
signed and circulated the following humble and solemn declaration of regret for the
part they had borne in the trials. As the publication of this paper was highly
honorable to those who signed it, and cannot but be contemplated with satisfaction
by all their descendants, I will repeat their names: "We whose names are under-
written, being in the year 1692 called to serve as jurors in court at Salem, on trial
of many who were by some suspected guilty of doing acts of witchcraft upon the
bodies of sundry persons, we confess that we ourselves were not capable to under-
stand, nor able to withstand, the mysterious delusions of the powers of darkness
and Prince of the air. but were, for want of knowledge in ourselves and better
information from others, prevailed with to take with such evidence against the
accused, as, on further consideration and better information, we justly fear was
insufficient for the touching the lives of any (Deut. xviij whereby we fear we have
been instrumental, with others, though ignorantly and unwittingly, to bring upon
ourselves and this people of the Lord the guilt of innocent blood; which sin the
Lord saith in Scripture he would not pardon 12 Kings xxiv. 4) — that is, we suppose,
in regard to his temporal judgments. We do therefore hereby signify to all in gen-
eral, and to the surviving sufferers in special, our deep sense of, and sorrow for, our
errors in acting on such evidence to the condemning of any person ; and do hereby
declare, that we justly fear that we were sadly deluded and mistaken — for which we
are much disquieted and distressed in our minds, and do therefore humbly beg
forgiveness, first of God, for Christ's sake, for this our error, and pray that God
would impute the guilt of it to ourselves nor others, and we also pray that we may
be considered candidly and aright by the living sufferers, as being then under a strong
and general delusion, utterly unacquainted with, and not experienced in, matters of
that nature.

"We do hereby ask forgiveness oPyou all, whom we have justly offended, and
do declare, according to our present minds, we would none of us do such things
again, on such grounds, for the whole world — praying you to accept of this in way
of satisfacton for our offense, and that you would bless the inheritance of the Lord,
that he may be entreated for the land.

He was an early settler in Reading, the exact place he settled is not known.
His descendants early removed to the northerly part of West Parish, now Reading,
where they are still to be found. He was there as early as 165 1. He was a prom-
inent citizen and selectman for years (1651-1664). In 1652, in the drawing of the
town lots, John Bachelder drew ten acres. Feb. 14, 1658, he drew 226 acres on
the north side of Ipswich river. In 1666 he drew land in the division of the Great
Swamp and his minister's rate was £1 — 6 — 5. John and Rebecca Batchelder were
admitted to the church in Reading between Sept. 29, 164S, and 1650.

Feb. 14, 1658, John Batchelder had 226 acres of land, his share as fell by lot
on the north side of Ipswich river. In 1667 the people of Reading ordered and
agreed "that all the privileges of land, timber and commons shall belong unto the
present houses now erected, and to no other, that shall be erected hereafter." John
Batchelder was one of the fifty-nine householders. He made his will July 2, 1670,
