See the official papers in 2 Mass. Hist. Coll. VIII. 240 ; Hutch. II.
1.54-162; and the wonderful letters of Increase and Cotton Mather to
D. with his reply in 1 Mass. Hist. Coll. III. 126-137. Sewall relates
in his Diary, that his min. the famous Ebenezer Pemberton, wh. we may
suspect that the parishioner had. favored with a perusal, said to him, that
" if he were Gov. he would humble Cotton Mather, tho. it cost him his
head." In our whole Provinc. hist, nothing is more curious than the
outcry a. trad, with the enemy at this time, and the results^ partly cruel,
partly ridiculous.
