ple Cobler of Aggavvam in America, a
piece of satire as able as it is vindictive
and intolerant. The first code of laws
made in New England was drafted by
Ward in 1639, and formally adopted in
1644. It is styled The Body of Liber-
ties. Mercurius Auti-mechanicus, or the
Simple Cobbler's Boy with his Lap-full
